This is a handsome antique Carlton House writing desk which dates to the early 19th century.

Made of mahogany, mixed woods and veneers it is an elegant, well aged and evocative looking piece which is ideal for an office or study. It will make a nice alternative to a traditional desk and is a useful work space for any home.

The desk is classically styled with a curved back and sloping compartments to the top which sit in front of an arrangement of small drawers and compartments.

There is a pull out writing slide to the front which is fitted with a very aged leather scriver.

Below the top section are three useful drawers, all finished with small turned bone handles.

The desk is on tall tapered legs which are finished with metal castors.

The wood has a nicely polished finish.


height to top-96cms

height to desk top-75.5cms




The desk is in original unrestored condition and has a very aged look.

There are many cosmetic marks of age and use which give it a sense of history and a good amount of character.

There are various marks to the top and the leather is very aged and worn away in places.

There are old wood worm holes underneath the desk, these have been treated and filled and are long inactive.

VINTAGE HOUSE is a small family run business based in South Devon, selling quality hand painted vintage and antique furniture and quirky home wares.

Our interest in Vintage furnishings has been years in the making.  From an early age I spent time at auctions and antique fairs in South Devon with my mum, a passion inherited from my eccentric grandmother who had an eye for quality and a hoarders heart for beautiful things.

Subsequently what started as a hobby has turned into a full time business, turning the endless search for things we love into things we can sell from our home and in our online store.

We source quality antique and vintage furniture from the 19th and 20th centuries and where necessary revive and restore pieces to bring them back to life and up-to-date.

In our workshop we undertake traditional French polishing and upholstery methods, as well as self taught painting techniques to re-finish pieces that require attention.

Most of our furniture is made of solid wood, usually oak, mahogany or pine, we appreciate quality and craftsmanship and prefer selling British made furniture whenever possible.

Selling pieces that are useful and practical in the modern home, storage is always a key theme, appreciating that people need attractive items that also provide functionality.

Our painted furniture is created using eco-friendly paints and waxes from Rustoleum, Farrow and Ball and The Little Greene Paint Company.

It has always been important to us to have a 'green' business, we love the concept of recycling old furniture instead of buying new.

Quality furniture is hard to find at a reasonable and affordable price and we feel that we provide both.  The things we sell don't belong in the mass produced age of flat pack furniture, but are tailored towards an individuality that will suit both modern and vintage homes alike.
