An attractive mahogany pedestal desk after an early 19th century design by Thomas Hope. The top has a mahogany perimeter with finely carved edge and inset, hand tooled, leather writing surface, above two short and one long drawer. Each pedestal has graduated drawers, with the lower two in the right-hand pedestal combining as a filer. The opposite side is also finished but without handles as standard. The flame mahogany combines with simple, yet elegant ebonised lines on all four sides with rounded corners to enhance a central room position.
With dark tan leather and ebonised highlights to the carved top edge and plinth.
Thomas Hope was an influential furniture designer. His extensive Grand Tour travels in Europe, Greece, Turkey and Egypt inspired his interest in antiquities as a source of designs for Regency interiors and furniture. His designs contributed to the classic revival of English furniture in the early 1800's.
