Drafting Table or Architect’s Desk

A wonderful, solid mahogany, architect’s desk or drafting table. This desk would have been used by either. The top lifts up and is adjustable. There is a small strip of wood this “pops” out as the top lifts to give support to paper or a book. The front “drawer” slides out to reveal a writing surface. This surface can lift open or slide back to reveal additional storage. Originally, this piece would have had 2 hidden drawers but the slides and drawers are not present. The slides could be replaced. On the right side of the drawer is a spin out compartment meant to hold ink. Each side of the desk has a concealable candle holder, one is original and one is an accurate copy. Most of the hardware is original with only the bale pull and posts being added around the 1900-1925. It would not have had either originally. It is 35 ¾” wide, 23 ½” deep, and 30 ¾” tall when closed. 

 

This is an incredibly rare piece. It is only the 2nd on we have ever owned. Overall, it is in very good condition. The finish is old and has a nice luster to it. There is a bit of marring that is pictured in a closeup photograph. It looks better in person but we wanted to make sure it is clearly seen by picture. English. Circa 1770.

Price: $5,750
