A handsome desk with multi-drawer interior, on an exceptionally tall bracket base.

The interior is fitted with ten drawers of various sizes.

The escutcheons are of the period, as are the brass pulls on the two upper drawers; the pulls on the two lower are replacements.

A very handsome example of this form, purchased from a local estate.

The drawer slides have been relined.
