Circa 1790 George III Mahogany Writing Table


In stock


This George III table has gold embossed trim around a beautifully weathered dark green-blue leather tabletop. The square body has been made entirely from mahogany with a mahogany veneer. It has a cross-banded mahogany edge around the leather top. A lacquered trim decorates every edge, outlining the clean simple lines. There are four pull-out drawers, two on opposite sides, with oak lining, offering the perfect amount of space for storing items. Each drawer has a brass swan neck handle. The desk has four straight thin tapered legs with brass-capped feet. While originally a writing table, it could also be used as a partner’s desk, worktable, or game table. Overall, it is a beautifully handcrafted piece of furniture that is a perfect example of the later George III furniture that evolved into having a simpler more delicate classic esthetic with elegant proportions.
