A top quality oak desk box with a moulded edge lid held by its original butterfly hinges and a front board with excellent carving depicting flowers and foliage and with the inscription AW 1718. Whilst this date seems to be quite late, it is without doubt original and it is likely that the workshop, probably in North Cheshire/South Lancashire, continued making pieces in the same style over a long period. Internally it has three small drawers and it is totally untouched condition including the drawer knobs, hasp and lockplate. Excellent colour and patination. 32 inches wide x 18 inches deep x 14 1/2 inches high.

Price: £1250
