French 19th Century Oak Artist’s Standing Desk

$3,200

About

This specialized oak desk was made in France. Used by artists, the desk’s lifted surface brings the table towards the artist, minimizing reach, and saving their aching backs. The work surface has a three quarter wood gallery and raised surface across the front. The desk is equipped with two drawers. The top drawer has an ormolu knob and a single compartment. The lower drawer sits just below and has multiple compartments. It is somewhat disguised without a pull and moves with the top drawer when it is open and closed. The desk is constructed with mortise and Tenon joints, and wood pegs. Sometimes a simple design, well executed, is perfection.
