Vintage G Plan Fresco Desk by VB Wilkins
This is a fine example of G Plan at its very best in its prime, championing the British mid-century design scene. Designed by Victor Wilkins, the man behind their ever-popular Fresco range, this 1960s teak and afromosia dressing table is in superb, original condition. It’s a substantial piece offering lots of storage with four spacious drawers and a hidden central, velvet-lined drawer too, along with an expansive top surface. This beautifully designed piece is more often used nowadays as a slimline desk which would perhaps suit home working on a laptop. An iconic piece of British vintage furniture that is becoming harder to find and is much sought-after.

This is an original, vintage piece that is ‘sold as seen’. It is in overall very good, used condition. It has been thoroughly cleaned and polished. It’s an expertly crafted piece of a very high quality construction, featuring dovetail joints and the immediately recognisable Fresco elongated drawer handles. All four main drawers are in good, tidy order internally and they slide with ease. There is an additional hidden vanity drawer in the centre that is velvet-lined – the velvet is a little marked with use but nothing unsavoury – see our photo. There are some very minor, light scuffs to the exterior wood here and there, and a little sunlight fading, but this is in line with the piece’s age. There is a small chip in the bottom left hand corner of the right lower drawer front but as you will see, it’s barely visible, especially when the drawer is closed. The mirror attaches with two uprights at the back and can be angled by pulling gently at the bottom. It can be easily removed if you would like to use this piece as a desk. The original G Plan sticker is still affixed in the drawer. Please do browse our photos for a good sense of its condition and tone. If you’ve any question or would like to view this piece, do get in touch.
