Product Description

We are pleased to be offering today this gorgeous tiger sawn raised panel carved pull lawyers bankers 60 inch wide roll top desk dating from the 1890s in fully 100% professional restored condition.  When we do a desk like this, we basically strip it down the bare finish, replace/retighten glue blocks to make sure it is tight and sturdy, sand, plane or whatever it takes to make this piece amazing.  We are one of the few that actually tear down the canvas and re-canvas the roll because that is one of the things that many people pass over and then two years down the road the roll needs replacing.  You won’t run into that problem with our roll tops and we will match our finish to anyone in the trade as we have been doing this for over 40 years!  We are pleased to have an item look as beautiful as this desk.  The desk has 37 individual raised panels inserted on the construction of the desk. All of the components are original except for the brass knobs on the  small drawers of the interior.  After gluing to insure tightness, we go through and hand sand, multiple coats stain, apply multiple coats of Sherwin Williams lacquer, scuff and sand between the hand rubbed coats and finally top the table off with multiple coats of moisture resistant lacquer.  We leave some of the characteristics mark in as you can see on the backside of the desk where there are a couple of little areas where they had old time repairs.  The desk is simply stunning in a satin sheen lacquer.    It is unusual to find a desk like this with as many raised panels and a semi full interior.  The interior has 13 drawers, with pencil tray pulls, pencil drawers and carved handles.  There are three slots for the letters and numerous pigeon holes.  The desk was made by Standard, who was very competitive to Derby, and they made a rounded corner heavy duty piece.  We have made sure that the locks work and come with keys.  You have four drawers on the left hand side with a pull out tray.  The center has a double carved handle center drawer.  The right hand side has a pull out tray and three drawers, one of which is a file drawer.  When you flip the top all the way in, it will release the locks of the drawers in the columns and the key in the roll top will lock the top.  It is just pretty much self explanatory from here.  Please keep in mind that it was original finish when we got it, but we repaired a few cracks and imperfections that we corrected for years of carefree use.  You are looking at a gorgeous roll top that is a great investment minded piece with the refinish job.  The overall size is 60 inches wide, 34 inches deep, 31 inches high to the writing surface and 50.5 inches tall to the very top.  The leg space is 26 inches wide by 27 inches high for the chair of your choice.  It will cost $485 to have this desk shipped within our normal area.  Please check with us prior to purchase to confirm that you are within our normal area.  We also ship to all point of Canada, but please contact us prior to purchase to obtain a quote for your specific locale.
