A simply stunning solid oak desk handmade by Astrola of London (Hammersmith, W6). It dates from around the late 1930’s to early 1940’s and is in completely original condition but fully cleaned and gently restored by us.
Truly stunning heavy English radial cut oak throughout, with through dovetails joints to the pull out drawers and dovetails on the three pedestal drawers. Even the drawer sides are solid mahogany, not the more usual pine. A sign of the quality of this desk. The tambour door works smoothly, as do all drawers and the pull out top shelf to the right pedestal. The roller door is released by pressing the original brass release button. There is a lock but no key. We would be able to get a key cut should you really want the pedestal door to lock.
A beautiful and rare desk that can be used as a decorative/ dress piece or as a fully functioning desk space.
The build and quality will mean these desks can only appreciate in value if looked after well.
