Attractive antique Victorian Rosewood davenport desk.
A lovely antique Victorian davenport. We date this davenport to the late 19th century.
The davenport has a writing slope fitted with a leather writing surface. The interior has an open storage space fitted with two drawers and various pigeon holes to the rear.
The top surface has a pierced fretwork gallery. There are two ink bottles within square recesses flanking a small sloped area where something has sat in the past. The writing slope is fitted with a lock (no key is supplied).
The davenport has four drawers on the right hand side, these have locks fitted (no key is supplied but a suitable replacement could easily be obtained if required). The left hand side has four dummy drawers, all the drawers have button handles. The davenport sits on brass castors and has two barley twist columns at the front.
The davenport has an overall height of 34.5" (88cm), a width of 21" (54cm) and a depth of 21" (54cm).
This lovely antique davenport remains in a good solid condition with surface markings commensurate with age and usage. The edges have some wear and minor indentations. There are some minor ink stains around the ink pots. There is a small veneer chip to the front right hand corner and the side panels have some minor age splits.
This remains a very stylish and elegant davenport. It will continue to provide sterling service for many years to come.
