moreA newly consigned piece from the late 1960s-early 70's is this gorgeous; British Colonial or Island-style, writing desk, with an eclectic, tobacco leaf top. Incidentally, as last image indicates the tobacco leaf has been hand-applied occasionally to depict large triangular shaped aspects among the leaf-like look. The body is rattan, with the combination of; wicker, caning, and wood to the interior drawers and sides, including the open shelving, with leather strapped details throughout, indicative to McGuire furniture. The desk has 3 drawer fronts, two smaller ones, on opposing ends, while a larger center drawer. Right below each end of the desk are two-tiered, open-shelving, with bentwood or cane detail, the flat surface is an indigenous wood utilized in much of these type of desks, usually manufactured in other regions of the world, Indonesia or parts of Asia, thus we were not able to glean the history or provenance of this piece, only that the owner has had it since the 1970's. Upon visiting this person, and unaware the desk which had mounds of paperwork, actually protected the tops surface. There are also plastic thick, indebted foot bumpers to the legs. There is no maker's mark evident.
Structurally sound and solidly built to withstand many cyclical generations and styles. Don't hesitate to ask any and all questions. We apologize for any of the glare or reflections due to the top application process, part and partial to this one of a kind desk. less
