Very Rare 18th Century Spanish Desk with Wrought Iron Trestling. For collectors who search for the best of a category, here it is.... This desk came to us through a dealer who acquires pieces from important European homes and parsonages. Every detail speaks of hand made workmanship and quality, from hand wrought iron supports to special, stylized floral motifs on the drawers. The primary wood is walnut. The assembly methods are motise and tenon, dovetails, etc. No details were overlooked when this fine desk was produced. The top is in good shape for it's years, albeit a few well done patches have been made. Also present are small scorched areas because candles were the only light source for the period. These details only serve to impart a sense of relevance to the time when it was used. In short--beautiful!
