Gilbert Rohde Art Deco Oval Drop-Leaf Desk



A superb drop-leaf desk by the American designer Gilbert Rohde, circa 1930s-1940s. The desk is crafted from mahogany and beech wood that are newly re-lacquered. The new finish gives the warm red-brown and orange tones of the wood a smooth gloss. Rohde's design echoes Neoclassical furniture and architecture in the two columnar legs and in the overall simplicity of form. The legs are fluted and rest on a platform base. The single drop-leaf allows for economic use of space. This is an exquisite, versatile desk that will surely be a centerpiece in your home. Dimensions: 59 in. width 75 in. width with drop-leaf extended 30 in. depth 29 in. height 27 in. skirt clearance.
