Vintage Workshop Art Metal London Single Pedestal Desk

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.
