French Victorian Heavily Carved Green Man Library Writing Desk. Table 93cm Width 56cm Depth 73cm Height.Barley twist legs and barley twist cross stretcher, (always a sign of quality) and opulent carved frieze. Heavy solid with rich oak patina and quality craftsmanship of the era.
Outstanding dimensional hand carvings on all sides, and carved bevelled edges all the way around, so can be placed in the centre of a room if required. A versatile piece of furniture in addition to serving as a writing desk, it would also be perfect as a console, hall, Sofa or side table. Please note that this table has had a very long and amazing history, and to still be here and serving as a beautiful piece to look at and admire as well as being a useful item, you would not expect it to look new!
It does therefore show signs of age and wear mainly to the top area, where usage naturally would have occurred the most. There's minor evidence of worm holes in areas of the base which although we couldn't find any active, we as always with wood this age treated it for our peace of mind. If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to contact me and I will endeavour to answer them.
