Here for sale is a fantastic and rare table top mahogany desk made by T. Inglesant and Sons of Leicester. With a lovely brass name plate with "Derby Desk" and the makers mark. Tambour front opens to reveal a fitted interior. Very unusual lock with the locking mechanism at the sides with rods pushed out each side. 


The tambour sticks half way and needs care to open and close. Many marks to the surface. Shows signs of wear and tear as it is old and has been used, but only adds to its character. Great decorative item which would look fantastic in any home or business interior.

Please look at photos closely as they form part of the item description.
