EARLY 19TH CENTURY GOOD QUALITY MAINLY SOLID MAHOGANY SHIPS DESK IN CLEAN ANTIQUE CONDITION BUT DOES NEED A FEW REPAIRS TO MAKE IT PERFECT. THIS IS OK TO USE AS IT IS, AS IT ALL WORKS OK. THERE ARE 4 DEEP DRAWERS AND 2 NOT QUITE AS DEEP, I THINK THE 2 SMALLER DRAWERS HAVE BEEN MADE SMALLER AT A LATER DATE FOR SOME REASON. THE CUPBOARD HAS SMALL STORAGE COMPARTMENTS. THE TOP LIFTS UP FOR STORAGE AND HAS A EXTENSION PIECE ON THE BACK.
THE POLISH IS OK ALL OVER. MEASUREMENTS ARE 53CM DEEP WITHOUT EXTENSION, 71CM WITH, 108CM WIDE , 75CM HIGH, KNEEHOLE IS 40CM WIDE BY 62CM HIGH.
THE MOULDINGS ROUND THE DRAWERS ARE ALL OK. REPAIRS NEEDED ARE SMALL PIECE OF MOULDING ON ONE SIDE, PLINTH ON ONE SIDE NEEDS A REPAIR ON BOTTOM, ONE DRAWER HAS A SMALL SPLIT BUT HARDLY NOTICES, ONE DRAWER NEEDS A REPAIR TO THE SIDE AND BACK INSIDE.
THE TOP HAS A SPLIT BUT THERE IS NO MOVEMENT ITS JUST RAISED SLIGHTLY, THE TOP IS FLAT WITH NO BOWING. COUPLE OF HANDLES NEED TIGHTENING. The item "Antique 19th century mahogany ships desk.
