A fine late 18th century small roll top writing desk in mahogany. The stunning satinwood interior is fitted with pidgeon holes (the small drawers seen at the back are dummy drawers). The full writing surface slides out, and the leather inset writing pad (possibly the original leather) can be raised on a ratchet. Below are 2 useful drawers with brass knob handles. The 4 tapered legs are raised on fine brass casters. Restrained Georgian design, warm but light colour, and excellent cared for surface, and wonderful originality, makes elegant desk a perennial delight. Circa 1780
