The front of the desk is supported by two tapered columns. The top of the columns have richly hand carved caps of foliage and flower heads. The column bases are finished with carved turnings in rosewood [see photos]. The whole desk is supported on four ball carved bun shaped circular feet recessed underneath and fitted with brass platform swivel castors. The main carcass is in mahogany veneered in birdseye maple and embellished with rosewood beadings, carved mouldings and drawer knobs. Inside the desk are four drawers, two being actual drawers, one false drawer and one being the front for the release button for the sprung loaded concealed pen and ink tray. The inside of the desk does have some ink stains which could possibly be removed but I feel these add age and character to the piece. Each side has a pull out candle shelf. The panelled side on the right is a door behind which are four graduated mahogany drawers with veneered fronts and cedar wood bases. . The desk lid and side door both have their original Bramah locks and these work fine. Both locks are operated by the same key. The desk lock is stamped W.R. and a Crown for William IV.[see photo] The key is also stamped Bramah.The desk top has had a replacement leather with gold leaf tooling and is still in very good condition The pierced brass gallery top could also be a later replacement.
