Ingenious & Rare 19th Century Mahogany Mechanical Architect's Desk



Marvelously designed versatile architect's desk that can be used as an elegant console with fretwork drop leaves, as a lecturn for an important book in a library, or as a functional work station architect's desk. The top of the table can be elevated in several adjustable heights from the back with brass pegs. Other nifty surprises are a felt top desk that pulls out from underneath, swing out round brass candle or drink holders, and two panels on the sides that open for storage.
