Item specifics

Seller notes: This item has been repainted in our own workshop a finished in a distressed 'Shabby-Chic' style. As such wear and tear is intentional and is an essential aspect of producing rustic finishes on antique furniture. All joints and dovetails are solid and the base is firmly connected to the body. There will be some dents/dinks to the wood here and there as is consistent with furniture of this age.
Product Type: Desk Age: 1800-1899
Original/Reproduction: Original Material: Pine
Style: Shabby Chic, French Country, Victorian


An original Victorian pine writing table with three drawers. The desk has been repainted by hand in our own workshop. The finish is a 'Shabby-Chic' distressed country look which has been achieved through a combination of priming and preparing the waxed pine, applying a red oxide undercoat, applying paint (several coats) before finally rubbing back the edges to give a genuinely 'aged' look to the desk. This is a process we have perfected over many years and leaves a hard wearing paint finish which can be lightly cleaned and will not discolour due to damp or sap seeping from the wood as some cheaper finishes can be prone to do. This desk features wooden drawer knobs, fully dovetailed drawers and sits atop two pedestal legs which are attached by a turned centre stretcher bar. Finally a black stencil detail has been added to make this item truly unique.
