Antique Twin Pedestal Desk (SOLD)

Antique Twin Pedestal Desk with Rope Trim


This is a beautiful antique twin pedestal desk with rope trim, circa early 1900s. It is in structurally sound condition but does have minor wear consistent with its age. The young lady I purchased it from told me that three generations of teachers in her family used this desk for teaching. It apparently was also used by children for studying and craft projects based on remnants and markings left in the bottom of the desk drawers! It is lovely to find a piece so well loved by a family.

Graphite, Duck Egg Blue, and Old White
The top of the desk was refinished in Graphite, the panels and drawers are Duck Egg Blue, and the trim and hardware is Old White. The entire piece was given an aged patina and then hand waxed and buffed for a strong durable finish.

Drawers are lined with removable liners
There are seven drawers total offering plenty of storage. Two small drawers, two medium drawers, two deep drawers (suitable for file folders), and one center drawer. Each drawer has been lined with removable drawer liners in a modern design which contrasts beautifully with the antique exterior.


This is a beautiful piece that would serve well as an office desk or would make a perfect addition to a craft/sewing room. The dimensions are 43"L x 22"D x 30"H. Two people can easily carry the desk; however, Peddler's Mall has flat carts available at the end of aisle 2 for moving larger items. Save your back and use the cart!

The back is also finished making it suitable for center room placement.
