Circa 1890, late Victorian mahogany pedestal desk. With a green leather insert which is tooled and gilded in the mahogany top, and the back is polished so it is free standing. A half moulding runs around the top, with a tapering pattern of quilling beneath it and a configuration of 1 long drawer and 2 shorter drawers. The drawers have a reeded section between each of them, and cast brass handles with back plate and cast lifting handle. The pedestals have 3 graduating drawers with the same cast brass handles and a half round ogee moulding. The desk stands on 4 unusual bell-shaped, turned feet with a brass and white porcelain castor inside.
