20th Century S Roll Top Desk
Thea asks: What can you tell me about this desk?
AW says: This is a very good quality late 2oth Century S Roll Top Desk. The clear crisp lines on the edges tell us it’s age, although it’s an excellent work which respected the style and construction of earlier period desks.
The condition is excellent and it’s a solid oak piece, not veneered. It’s a good home model, which have more styling than the commercial counterparts. For example: beveled drawer fronts, banks that go all the way to the floor on either side as opposed to being set on feet, and a nice S-roll, where commercial models are often of the plainer C-Roll variety.
