Vintage Mahogany Inlaid Writing Desk. Fabulous vintage Empire style writing desk with fine inlay and carving. Lovely quality when new and still in great condition, a lovely colour and a great size, as not too large, and it is perfect to use straight away.

Below is an arrangement of 5 quarter crossbanded and inlaid mahogany fronted drawers, to the centre is a knee hole and a carved band is to the bottom edge.
