This is a rare and unusual in many ways. Firstly it's a sizeable masculine design, but also it appears to have barely been used in its 150+ years life. The drawers all run smoothly, almost as if they were made yesterday, and smell of freshly cut timber. Extraordinary opportunity for someone that wants a small but usable desk that should last several lifetimes!
