Antique Arts and Crafts Desk Quarter Sawn Oak Carved Fretwork Gothic Revival
This listing is for a fabulous and stunning antique Arts and Crafts desk, in quarter sawn Oak. The piece possibly began life in a church or monastery. The dovetailed drawers have beautiful curved fronts and slope inwards - see photos. The back and side panels are carved in a simple Gothic style, and the desk top has an ink well base either side of a pen/quill cut-out. At some stage in its history it has probably had some type of book-shelving system over the desk, as there are faint marks at each end of the desk. There are signatures that look like PL on the back of both drawers, and underneath the desk are the numbers 222, along with 2 over 1 over 20. In all, this is a fine example of craftsmanship, that would make a stunning addition to any room. Condition is very good, and considering its age, it is a sturdy piece of furniture with a lovely patina.
