Here for sale is a fantastic antique marble topped desk or wash stand. This stunning inlaid desk has its original brass handles. The intricate inlaid marquetry doors are fabulous. The marble in pink and white and follows the serpentine front of the desk.
Made by S and H Jewell were fine quality cabinet makers who were established in 1830. They were a family business who worked from their premises at 29-31 Little Queen Street, Holborn, in London.
We believe it was originally a wash stand as there are holes drilled to the marble at the back where an upstand would have been. The original brass locks are made by Hobbs of London, unfortunately there is no key.
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.
