The desk has magnificent fluted columns at every corner with small ringlet turnings above and a sophisticated base molding below. The desk has 3 standard and 1 oversized drawer in each bank. The drawers have carved oak handles with one pull out writing tab in each bank. The roll top actuates with ease and houses a fully fitted interior.
The desk has a total of 9 card drawers, 4 letter drawers on the left side, 5 additional drawers in the middle, 2 carved pencil drawers, and a cabinet door and fitted ink well drawer on the right. This didnt come to us with a key but the lock shouldnt be too sophisticated and a locksmith should be able to fabricate one easily.
Roll top desks were the gold standard in Victorian offices and they remained popular for quite some time. Roll top desks had fallen out of fashion in the 90s / 2000s because they couldnt comfortably house large computer towers, speakers, monitors etc.. Now that the majority of homes have a laptop computers roll tops have reclaimed their former glory.
We have a couple other roll top desks that well try to list soon but while theyre great desks, they are certainly not on this tier. Cutler Desk company was from the Buffalo NY area and we have had a few of their desks in the past but they were not this heavily decorated.
The desk is in wonderful condition with our only notes being a small diamond shaped patch to the top, repairs to the 2nd & 3rd drawer handles on the left bank, the roll top lock has been removed, and there is a small divot on the left center drawer from an old candle burn. The desk measures 60 wide x 38 deep x 50 3/4 tall. The work surface height is 30 3/4 with the top having useable dimensions of 54 wide x 22 deep to the beginning of the drawers & 32 to the back of the cavity.
