Large Vintage 1960’s Danish Walnut Desk with Drawers
This grand desk would make anyone happy to work! It’s a fine Danish piece dating from the 1960’s and it has much to offer with its generous proportions, ample storage with three deep drawers and its handsome good looks. It’s a heavy, substantial desk made in solid walnut with an exquisite, near flawless patina on its top surface. There are some wonderful design flourishes here like the winged sides, the silver retro handles and the pull-out writing panel. It’s worth noting it looks fantastic from all sides too if you wished to not put against the wall. One of the things we love the most about a larger desk is the room it gives for the chair and your legs to fit underneath, without bashing into the drawer unit.
This vintage desk is ‘sold as seen’. We would categorise it as in excellent vintage condition. It has been thoroughly cleaned and the top surface sanded and refinished with oil and polish to showcase the exquisite patina. There are very minor scuffs and marks as you would expect with a used, vintage piece. This includes some areas where a varnish / finish has been added at a later date and it’s a little patchy along the front edge under the desktop. It’s not particularly noticeable though. The drawers slide with ease. They are a little marked inside with ink from use. It’s very solidly constructed with no wobbles or repairs. Sadly the maker’s label is longer in place but it was imported directly from Denmark. Please refer to our photos for an accurate sense of the condition of this piece.
