Early 18th Century Burr Walnut Kneehole Desk With Herringbone Crossbanding

Early 18th Century Burr Walnut Kneehole Desk With Herringbone Crossbanding

There are antiques, and then there are fine antiques. This definitely falls into the latter catagory. An absolutely stunning early 18th century, George I, ladies' kneehole desk with stunning quarter veneered burr walnut crossbanded top, matched on the 7 drawer fronts with herringbone cross banding and dovetails through to the veneer. The drawers are finished off with beautiful brass pulls secured with split pins. The front has gorgeous bead mouldings around the drawer openings. The central kneehole cupboard has two shelves and a working lock and key. The desk is raised on bracket feet, which are obvious replacements of what would have originally been bun feet - some of the original dowel holes are still present underneath.


In absolutely excellent condition throughout. The key only works on the central cupboard - this lock was probably replaced at a later date to stop the cupboard door swinging open. One drawer is missing its locking mechanism.


An absolutely exquisite kneehole that would shine in any interior.
