An excellent example of the ever popular Abbess double pedestal desk in Oak. This one has a superb back story too. It was owned since 1986 by a prestigious Music journalist that used the desk to write many articles. He wrote for many of the top UK Magazines including Q, NME, and JazzLife. He won Music Journalist of the year twice! These desks are often referred to as Teacher’s desks and it may have been in a school for 30 years before being acquired by its previous owner.
The desk dates from around the 1950’s and is a superb colour and size. Three drawers to the left hand pedestal and two drawers to the right hand pedestal. The bottom right hand drawer being a double height filing type drawer. This desk also has the central kneehole drawer. There are also two pull out trays, the right hand one being the original Abbess stationery tray. All in all offering lots of really useful storage. We had to sand back and restore the top as it clearly had been used for lots of work and was tired and peeling. It is now fully restored and ready for another 50 years of work and creativity by a lucky new owner.
A great size desk, offering a generous fully functioning workspace but not too large to be difficult to position or accommodate. The colour and condition are exactly right for a very stylish work/ study desk. With the prestigious back story to boot, it is a fantastic opportunity to get a desk with real soul.
We have sold a number of these Abbess desks and they never hang around for long. Especially not in this colour with history.
