1920s English Oak 2 Drawer Desk Bakelite Handles

BILLY HUNT

A Good 1920s English Oak 2 Drawer Desk Bakelite Handles of Modest Size

A most attractive little oak desk surviving from the late 1920s and with the uncommon addition of still having its original Bakelite handles in place.

Never easy to find desk of this size from this era and this one is presented in fine order. Historically it would have started life in an office or factory and is uniform and business like in form - very practical.

Workshop report – The desk has enjoyed a repolish which has highlighted the grain well. The original Bakelite handles are still in place with no cracks, chips or breaks to them. We have waxed the drawer runners and they are running smoothly. The inside of the drawers have been painted black which looks fine. The top is only lightly marked with no chunks or deep scratches to the surface.

A fine looking little English oak desk with an industrial past and with the benefit of two drawers.

Dimensions – Overall: Height 76.5cm x Width 91.5cm x Depth 53cm
Dimensions – Specifically the Kneehole: Height 62cm x Width 75.5cm

Billy Hunt is an independent partnership based in a wonderful Victorian Farming Buiding once used to stable Dray Horses for Bass Brewery and with the assistance of technology, enjoys serving customers nationally and internationally. The collaboration of successful Interior Designer Martina Reitbauer and Ardent Gatherer Wayne Lawless brings to you an exciting and ever evolving selection of items for your home which do not have the constraints of a particular era, no onus on any particular style or a brand agenda to respect.

We choose to source across the UK believing that the British Isles offers a splendid mix of fine quality, true eccentricity, creative design and exceptional craftsmanship which very few can equal.

We take pleasure in gathering pieces from country houses, time-worn factories and auctions travelling extensively to seek out the appealing. You will notice when viewing our collection, we are not afraid to evolve furniture, recognise the need to modernise but are also content to leave “as found” aiming to create a piece or pieces that are beautiful, distinctive and a delight to live with.

Our wish is to show you some wonderful items that you would love to own and offer a service which is personal, professional, considerate and a pleasurable experience. You are able to view our stock in person by appointment, just contact us to arrange a convenient time here.
