Antique Edwardian Inlaid Mahogany Davenport Desk
Antique Edwardian mahogany Davenport with fine satinwood inlay in great condition throughout. It has a gallery back flip up compartment for pens, etc, with various compartments. There is a faded green leather writing surface, that opens up to reveal more storage space. There is also a cupboard below this, which we lost the key for when photographing it, so we can't show you the inside of this. We will provide a key to open this cupboard before sending it out. This davenport sits on casters & the back of this piece is polished too, so it looks great from all angles. It's a very compact piece of furniture & very useful too. It dates to around the 1890-1910 period.
Width - 20.5", 52 cm
Depth - 17.3", 44 cm
Height - 33", 84 cm
Knee height - 23.6", 60 cm
As with all of my items, one might find the odd indentation or marking consistent with the age of the item, so please don't expect new looking antiques. Everything is restored & polished when needed, but I would rather leave as much originality & character as possible.
For those of you wanting delivery, please note the rough guide in costs below, but please note that in order to keep the delivery costs down, very few items can be delivered immediately & sometimes it might take 1-3 weeks, because everything is done by courier.
Please read all the terms and conditions below before bidding.
We have been dealing in antiques for over twenty-five years. Our client base is very loyal, and we have many long-term relationships with both private and trade customers. We have a lot of experience in shipping items of furniture all over the world & will always try to obtain the best possible price, while ensuring safe delivery.
We can accept payment via personal cheque, banker's draft (pounds sterling only), credit and debit cards, or Pay Pal. We also accept cash on collection.
Please note, if you are not happy with any product, we will take it back within 7 days, providing it is in the same condition as when it left our shop. However, you will be responsible for the cost of transport both ways. Obviously, if there is a genuine fault with the product that we haven't mentioned, we will cover the cost of transport, but please be sensible because our products are old so they are bound to have some signs of wear. Should anything be damaged in transport, it will be repaired for you for free. You will need to notify us of any problems straight away. Remember, good communication is important.
Domestic & Overseas Shipping Arranged
Please contact us for a delivery quote before bidding. As a rough guide, most of the furniture items we sell can be sent to the majority of places in England for around £50-£80, but there can be exceptions for more out of the way places, or extremely large pieces, so please always ask. Wales & Scotland may be a bit more. We only ship at cost price, and do our best to get a good deal for our customers.
For overseas shipping most companies charge extra for insurance, between 1.5% & 2.5% of the invoice value. For all deliveries, we will require a full postcode and a telephone number. On most shipments, we ask that you pay the courier or shippers direct - that way you know we only ship at cost. Also, we ask that you communicate directly with each other once the goods have left our premises. Obviously, we will help and advise where we can.
