Mid Century Art Deco Painted Lebus Bureau Desk in Farrow and Ball Off Black

Mid Century Art Deco Painted Lebus Bureau Desk in Farrow and Ball Off Black

Description:

A stunning mid century Art Deco style lockable fall front oak bureau / writing desk by the renowned Harris Lebus, dating from 1960's with a single drawer and cupboard below. Internally it has storage compartments along with a further small drawer, and a beautifully worn original writing pad with brass desk supports which open automatically when the desk is opened. The desk is well proportioned and is in very good order with the original beautiful handles which I have cleaned and polished by hand (not sprayed or painted over!) The lock is also original and still working with key. The desk has been carefully sanded and restored and has been painted in Farrow & Ball's dark and dramatic 'Off Black' Modern Eggshell. This piece would be a fabulous statement addition to a home office, hallway, dining room, landing or indeed any contemporary room.

Condition:

This piece is in excellent condition with no damage to note apart from the minor nicks, dents and previous repairs which are to be expected with vintage and antique pieces and adds to their character. The writing pad is the original and is worn and full of character, with marks from times long since past.

I’m not a ‘furniture flipper’; I don’t turnover large quantities of quickly refinished pieces; I spend huge amounts of time and care and on each piece and pour parts of my soul into each item. I specialise in refinishing vintage and antique furniture and I spend hours hand picking each of my pieces locally and I don’t sell anything that I wouldn’t have in my own home. I don't just slap on a coat of chalk or mineral paint on my pieces and call them upcycled - each of my pieces undergoes a lengthy process of restoration and preparation before being painstakingly stripped, cleaned, restored, woodworm treated if there is any sign of historic woodworm, primed and undercoated before painting a minimum of 4 coats to ensure a high quality finish. I apply a lacquer to high traffic surfaces for durability.
