We are pleased to be offering today this wonderful turn of the century oval mahogany library writing desk that dates from the 1890's in original condition. It is a very unusual piece as it has large Jenny Lind faces on the ends of both sides of the legged base. The faces are 8 inches wide by approximately 12 inches high. It is very unique as I have never seen one like this. It has scroll jelly feet with applied carvings on both ends, multi-shape molded edge on the bottom shelf, beaded molded on the top with sunflower blocks on all the corners and a wide ogee bevel edge on the oval top. It also has a dove tail drawer in the center. The overall size is 48 inches long, 30 inches deep and 28 inches high. The bottom shelf is approximately 8 inches high. The table is all original finish and shows normal nicks and dings. We will gladly sand the top down, color match it to the base and re-spray it for the buyer if desired and it can be discussed at the time of purchase. It has the original solid brass hardware and a large center drawer that is 19 inches wide and 22 inches deep. There is a small fleck of wood missing from the inside of the drawer, which you can't see when the drawer is closed. The table has a castor base for easy movement. Shipping starts at $285 for a driveway delivery in our normal area. Please contact us prior to purchase to confirm that you are in our normal area.
