1940s Art Metal Twin Pedestal Desk


Vintage 1940s Art Metal Twin Pedestal Desk Wonderful Condition

A very original one owner table/desk from the offices of Albion St Works, a Grade 2 listed factory in Birmingham. Never easy to find in this condition...

Art Metal of London made some great stuff and it was very well designed and manufactured. I do not think you will find desks of this type made any better.

It’s a great looking piece of furniture with its grey folded metal frame, metal rim, black feet and dense dark racing green Linoleum top. The fact that this has remained in one place means that the wear is wonderful and genuine. The frame is historically marked and worn in the right places and the top with no splits or lifts is again marked according to its history. Just wonderful British pieces of furniture C1940s. The desk is complete with typing slides on either side on the top of the pedestals that run well as are all the drawers, there is a central wide drawer which proudly displays the Art Metal London crest. Smells fine and is very heavy.

A great looking desk!

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 take pleasure in gathering pieces from country houses, time-worn factories and auctions travelling extensively to seek out the appealing.
