A Vintage Oak Abbess Two Drawer Desk

Presented in good vintage order, this two drawer desk from Abbess is in a pleasing oak tone and of an accommodating size compared to some.

The desk is well constructed and benefits from having adjustable metal discs on the base of the legs, in case your floor is uneven... It’s of a relatively modest design and shape, very much of its era around 1940s. The attractive, slightly tapered oak legs, are matched with the rounded edges to the top with two drawers for storage.

Condition wise it’s good – the legs are aging well with decent colour, the top has historic marks no deep gouges or repairs and again is of good tone. The drawers have their original matching oak handles with only a couple of little ink stains within. Overall its firm with no wobbles. We have carefully cleaned the desk and bees waxed the surface. Expect the usual aging etc.

Pretty much ready to go - please note the legs do unscrew for placing and delivery if space is tight.

Dimensions – Overall: Height 76.5cm x Width 136.5cm x Depth 75.5cm
Dimensions – Specifically the Kneespace: Height 59.5cm x Width 119cm

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