About

We are delighted to offer for sale this stunning RRP £13,000 original shagreen black lacquered with gold gilt metal detailing writing table desk  This is a very substantial desk. Shagreen for those of you who aren’t familiar is shark or ray skin. There are reproductions skins available however these are totally original, the way to tell apart from the feel is on the reproductions each skin is exactly the same, on the real hide each cut is slightly different This desk came from a Chelsea mansion home, it was set up around 20 years ago by the then richest lady in England, she had the home made for visiting friends and family to stay in when on holiday in London. The home was used approximately five times during that period, as such its now been sold It is in excellent condition, there will be the odd mark here and there from transport Dimensions: Height 75.5cm Width 125.5cm Depth 65.5cm This item is available for collection from our Wimbledon warehouses. Condition: Please view the very detailed pictures as they form part of the description around condition Please note vintage period and original items such as leather seating will always have natural patina in the form of cracking creasing and wear, we recommend regular waxing to ensure no moisture is lost, also hand dyed leather is not recommended to sit in direct sunlight for prolonged periods of time as it will dry out and fade.
