Product Description

A beautiful and functional reception desk…

Although we are unsure of the exact age of this piece, we believe it would date from the mid to latter part of the 20th century. We do know that this was originally used at the entrance of a hotel, but we are unsure for how long. What we can tell you is that it is a nice looking piece and very functional

Standing at just over 1 metre tall, the desk is a perfect height for welcoming guests into a venue, or maybe this could be a cool hallway cupboard to store your keys (in the hidden ‘lift up’ lid at the top of the desk) – as pictured. It’s made in what we think is pine, but as it has been heavily covered with a dark stain, we cannot be too sure. The desk has some wonderful craftsmanship and some elegant legs, yet there are some surface imperfections which shows its authenticity. Simply lift the lid to reveal a nice sized storage area and a bottom shelf of what we think is made in ply…

We are offering this piece in ‘as found’ condition, therefore there is natural wear and tear. This desk is structurally strong and perfectly free stands on its own. There are however some knocks and bruises which gives some ‘higgledy piggledy’ areas of wood to the top half of the desk. Notably there are a few chips or imperfections, but we can assure you that they are not detrimental to the structure and stability of the desk. Other than some paint chipping and some surface scuffs, the piece is elegant and oozes authenticity. Please do study the photos to help with your analysis as it would be hard to highlight all imperfections…

Perfect for a bar, hotel, restaurant or hallway…
