Vintage Abbess 1950’s Oak Teacher’s Desk
Such a charming, characterful, British midcentury desk that, even though adult-sized, has neat, tidy proportions. It’s prim and proper, most probably like the teacher who sat behind it! Solidly made and heavy, this oak desk was made to last. We like the chunky table top softened by the rounded edges that match the drawer handles. With three drawers and a pen tray it has all your working space needs covered.
This vintage desk is ‘sold as seen’. We would categorise it as in very good vintage condition. It has been gently cleaned inside and out, and its external surfaces lightly polished. There are minor scuffs and marks, particularly on the top as you would expect with a used, vintage piece. The three drawers moves with ease as does the pull-out pen tray. The Abbess maker’s mark can be seen on the pen tray and also engraved in the lock.
