Product Description

A beautiful two-seater school desk…

Although we are unsure of the exact age of this piece, we believe that it would date to the mid part of the 20th century, circa 1940s (maybe earlier). Originating from Paris, France, the desk is hand crafted in Oak and is such a charming and functional piece

Stretching over 1.1 metres wide, the desk is designed for two youngsters to sit and work at, and includes ‘under desk storage’ and the expected slanted wooden surface. The icing on the cake is the original glass ink wells, which are stamped ‘PARIS’ on their bottom. The doweled joints and the current patina brilliantly show off the originality and authenticity of this desk.

We are offering this piece in ‘as found’ condition, therefore there is some natural wear and tear. The desk is structurally good and functional. There are surface scuffs and abrasions across the wood and some small cracked areas to the top and sides, yet not detrimental to the structure. There is a general used or weathered feel across the piece and some old signs of woodworm (minimal), but they have previously been treated. Please do study the photos to help with your analysis as it would be hard to highlight all imperfections…
