There are around 50-100 high definition super-sized pictures at the bottom of this page. A very good looking well made and decorative piece of art furniture, this desk in a world of really quite simple Davenports is in a league of its own, the carving is very much in the European taste and from the Jacobean era. The desk boasts a green leather writing surface on top of a hinged storage space which comes with the original key, a hidden side drawer which is also hinged, you really cant see it unless you know its there, under you find a cupboard door which houses four large drawers with campaign handles so the door closes nicely and flush, again this door has the original key. The best antiques are those which continue to serve a purpose, this little piece does that in spades, the size is fantastic for compact modern living, it can be used as a study desk to house paperwork and or a laptop, it truly is a great piece of furniture and looks glorious from every angle.
