This delightful mahogany Davenport desk, thought to have been constructed in 1891 is as practical as it is great to look at and would be a lovely addition to any home.     

This is a small desk with an inclined lifting desktop, attached with hinges to the front of the body. Lifting the desktop accesses a large compartment displaying the simple but practical mechanism for the tilting desktop. There is a main drawer at the front and four drawers accessed from the right-hand side of the desk. at the back of the writing area is a flap that lifts back to reveal cubby holes and other stationary compartments. A dedication plaque commemorates that the desk was presented as a retiring gift to the superintendent of a West Yorkshire sunday school, at Easter time in 1891.

We have restored this charming desk by stripping back the previous dark stain to reveal the lighter tones of the mahogany grain underneath. A clear matt lacquer has been applied giving a long-lasting and appealing finish. 

The classic design, with clean lines coupled with the beautiful mahogany grain, will ensure this piece fits seamlessly with a range of decor.
