Rare Late 1800s/Early 1900s Schneegas Davenport Desk @ £89.00SOLD
Here is a stunning golden varnished wooden Schneegas Davenport desk, one of the rarer Schneegas pieces and a first for KT Miniatures. Schneegas desks are not rare, but ones with an upper cabinet are more rare. Please read description carefully and study photos, as the original handles are missing plus there has been a repair to one drawer.
This lovely desk has a sloping lift-up writing desk top that reveals ample storage inside. The original green paper blotter remains on the exterior of the lid. There are three lower opening drawers on the right side, and an opening cupboard door on the lower left side. There are two attractive scrolled front supports. The upper half has four small opening drawers, three separate open cubby holes with small shelf underneath. The very top has a long shelf. This will look fabulous laden with antique writing paraphernalia and papers, etc.
Overall this is in a good played with condition, but please note a previous owner has replaced the missing soft metal handles with vintage bead pins (probably many years ago), which have been cleverly undertaken and look rather lovely in themselves. Also the top lower side drawer has different coloured wooden sides so am assuming at some point during the life of this desk, this drawer has been repaired. The reverse still has the original paper backing still in place. Measures 3 7/8” wide x 2 3/8” deep x 5” back height x 3” desk height. This is absolutely beautiful and I don’t think the photos have done justice!
