The people at Art Metal knew how to build stuff to last and this single pedestal desk survives in fantastic unspoiled condition having avoided the dreaded strip and polish session. This is one of five we salvaged from the offices at Albion St Works a watchmakers factory in Birmingham.
It’s of a sensible size – some can be a little on the large side! It’s the condition, like that of the others is great, lots of genuine wear not only to the top but all round. They all possess a typists slide handy for that cuppa!

Workshop report - The desk has been cleaned and lightly waxed. The drawers are running well and the file slide is still in place above the drawers. The Art Metal London badging remains in place by way of teeny rivets. The original green top is clean and genuinely marked and scarred. The drawers have the original deco era handles in situ and the black stubby feet are also in place. Wear to the grey paint is historic with nothing new or out of place. A weighty little beast indeed.
A smashing vintage British desk from Art Metal London.

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.
