Anglo Indian Ornamental Writing Desk



A carved writing desk from the United Kingdom, circa 1900. This rare colonial inspired piece is carved from tropical hardwood in ornate detail. Tropical birds and crouching lions support a handy writing surface. Pigeon-hole drawers and interior compartments allow for convenient storage, while a lower drawer bank hides the rest. The captivating jungle scenes are framed by rich materials and detailed craftsmanship, in lacquered hardwood, hand punched leather tabletop, and original brass hardware in this eye-catching statement piece.
