Original Vintage AH McIntosh Shelf Unit with Desk

An unusual midcentury piece from AH McIntosh of Kirkcaldy, it combines a wall shelf unit with a integrated desk. Made in 1971 (it’s date stamped) in teak veneer, this offers a really practical solution for rooms where a work station is required but there isn’t the space for a traditional one. There are tall, adjustable shelves with a small desk area that comes with a slim drawer and space underneath for a chair to tuck in. This item has only had one previous owner and we were told their father worked at this desk each day. Whilst there are some superficial knocks, it’s in great shape for a working piece.

This is an original piece that is ‘sold as seen’. It is in overall good, used condition. We have lightly cleaned the piece with a natural beeswax polish. There are some minor knocks and chips here and there but overall it’s in great shape. We have completed a small repair to some trim on the side where a section at the bottom that was missing has been replaced – see our photo of this. The drawer slides with ease and the maker’s label is inside the drawer. The upper shelves and the desk unit itself can be moved by adjusting the shelf pegs into different holes. Although it does stand freely, it should be screwed to the wall (there is a plate at the top to do this) for stability and safety. Please browse our photos for an accurate sense of the overall superb condition.
