Rare Harvey Probber Brass and Mahogany Desk


Harvey Probber mahogany writing desk with white laminate top with solid brass tubular legs and solid brass flat bar stretchers. Left side oriented three drawer case with original solid brass handles. Drawer bottoms also white laminate. Harvey Probber label in top drawer. Finished on all sides so able to float in a room. Single kneehole drawer which can be removed along with tracks if an even sleeker look is preferred. Clean line design similar to Florence Knoll and George Nelson but the rich materials (brass and mahogany) bestow glamour to this iconic Mid-Century Modern form.
