George I Walnut Secretaire Kneehole Desk

About

An early 18th century English walnut secrétaire kneehole desk. George I period (1714-1727). Ca 1720. Of exceptional lovely waxed honey color and old patina with well-matched veneers. With a quarter-veneered top. Six short drawers below a hinged fall revealing a writing section all surrounding a central recessed cupboard. There is a shaped pull-out small drawer fitted in the apron. All finely inlaid with herringbone lines. Raised on original bracket feet. Swan-neck handles probably fitted later in the 18th century. Locks and keys are mostly original. Walnut veneered and crossbanded sides. Nb. Having a fitted secrétaire drawer distinguishes this antique walnut kneehole desk, relatively few desks of this period have this much sought-after and useful feature. Note the gently chamfered leading edges to the kneehole recess. This compact and elegant early Georgian walnut desk comes ready-to-use, and will add great character to the environment of any home. Also referred to as a 'vanity' or 'dressing table'. Lit: Ralph Edwards CBE FSA 'Shorter Dictionary of English Furniture’, Hamlyn Publ, Fourth Impression 1972, p. 556, ill. 8 - A walnut kneehole desk dated, circa 1733.
