An interesting and unique early 19thC Antique French 'Merchants' Desk which even today would sit beautifully in your home. It has ample space for storage in the lockable cupboard area above your sitting space, original clasp and key. The desk space is large enough for a good size laptop. There are charming 'port' glass marks showing where the Merchant would sit and await his account money to be paid and popped in the little slot into the drawer. A really exquisite handmade desk, which is a captivating piece of furniture in its own right.
The wood is in lovely Antique condition for its age, with attractive patina within the wood, some marks as would be expected for its age.
