Vintage Art Deco Oak Painted Writing Desk / Dresser in Farrow and Ball Off Black

Vintage Art Deco Oak Painted Writing Desk / Dresser in Farrow and Ball Off Black


An elegant Art Deco solid oak writing desk / dresser with seven drawers fitted with the stunning original handles which I have cleaned and lovingly polished by hand (not painted over or spray painted!). Inside I have lined the drawers with a beautiful ebony damask patterned paper. The desk has been carefully stripped, fully prepared, restored and beautifully painted in Farrow and Ball's dark and dramatic 'Off Black' Modern Eggshell. A stunningly beautiful and useful piece for a contemporary or period home office.


This piece is in excellent condition and there is no major damage to note apart from the customary minor knocks, dents and cracks which are to be expected with antique and vintage pieces. In the top left drawer someone has previously had an accident inside with red ink which can be viewed in the final photo. 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 restoration and preparation process before being stripped, cleaned, woodworm treated if required, and primed and undercoated before painting a minimum of 4 coats to ensure a high quality finish.


    Dimensions (all sizes are approximate): 

    Height: 73cm
    Width: 109cm
    Depth: 48.5cm
