Antique desks from the 19th and the 20th century

The first desks saw the light of day in the early 18th century in France and in Italy. Even then their function was basically the same as today. They were used to store documents and letters, but also as a place where, among others, journals, letters or diaries were written. The shape of the desk changed with the incoming and outcoming fashion. Initially, the desk was made of a table top with numerous drawers or cabinets. Its massive appearance and rich ornamenting motivated the owners to exhibit it in sight, away from other furniture, so that it would be visible. If you are a collector of old furniture and would like to add to your collection a desk that participated in many historical moments or belonged to important personalities, be sure to check out our Antique Beauty store, where we gather real historical gems, single pieces, and unique models of desks from the 19th and the 20th century. Our desks, as well as other furniture, have undergone thorough renovation in a professional renovation workshop.

One-of-a-kind desks

Not everyone knows that in the past there were desks manufactured just for ladies. In Antique Beauty, we can boast of many desks, but also of three ladies’ models. One of them is a rosewood lady’s desk, circa 1880, manufactured in Great Britain. A true bargain for connoisseurs of art, especially that the desk has been equipped with a rectangular mirror, as well as a large number of drawers of various sizes. The letter cabinets and pulpit were lined with natural leather and gold ornaments. Another gem in our store is an Eclectic lady’s desk dated between 1890 and 1900. The simple structure, depth of the color, and two simple drawers with a narrow shelf that is supported by the columns will attract the attention of many connoisseurs. The desk has only undergone the process of re-varnishing, which proves its quality. The last typical lady’s desk in our offer was made in Western Europe, of rosewood, and is dated the turn of the 19th and the 20th centuries. It is composed of a top with three drawers with floral patterns and the legs fancily bent into a delicate arc.
