This pedestal desk has a rectangular leather inset top and supports a small shelf with an openwork ormolu grille and small columns. The kneehole is flanked by three drawers on either side and has a writing slide disguised in the central frieze drawer above. It is decorated throughout with ebonized stringing, which contrasts well with the figured olivewood, and ormolu mounts. The whole is raised on turned feet. English, circa 1860.
For a very similar desk, but with ormolu edging, see Margaret Jourdain, Regency Furniture 1795-1830, London, 1965, p75, fig. 167.
