An old traditional teak merchant’s desk with drawers. Old desks similar to these can still be seen being used by cross-legged merchants and shopkeepers at some of India's oldest street markets - including those at Jodhpur and Jaipur.
The desk's top lid has an incline and twin front drawers. Its fabrication shows excellent workmanship and heavy close-grain solid teak.
The lid lifts to reveal a large single compartment with a side compartment.
These chests would make great work desks for artists and designers or children.
They would make a great feature in a living room, bedroom or in a study.
These distinctive old desks would make beautiful jewellery or memory boxes or a great place to put your valuables.
We also have antique brass padlocks available to complement our old wooden chests and trunks.
Size: W76cm x D47cm x H48cm.
Our old wooden desks are not new or made to look old. They may have small marks and scratches on them, which are consistent with their age and original use. We feel these add to their character and appeal. Please look at the photos to get an idea of their condition. For more information see our ethical policy for wooden furniture and wooden accessories.
