A fine quality oak pedestal desk by Edwards & Roberts
A fine quality light oak pedestal desk by Edwards & Roberts. Classic instantly recognisable design with rounded outside front edges, inset moulded panel on both sides, nine mahogany lined drawers, with original locks and key, and original wooden threaded knobs. Signed Edwards & Roberts, Wardour St, London, on centre drawer.
The pedestals are supported on original wooden castors and the writing surface is lined with a top quality black and gold embossed hide.
The whole desk is in exceptional original condition.
Size: 54" wide (137cm) x 31.1/2" deep (80cm) x 29.1/2" high (75cm)
Kneehole: 24" wide (61cm) x 23.3/4" high (60.25)
Dealers note: This is a rare classic by Edwards & Roberts. Quality exudes at every point: secure 4-lever locks by Samuel Hall of Birmingham, original wooden castors in immaculate condition that one would normally expect to have long since been replaced, and every one of the wooden knobs original and virtually perfect. In all, this is difficult to compare and will most likely be a "first to see will buy"!
