    About this item

    17th-century Oyster veneer kneehole desk

    Stunning English William and Mary circa 1690 Laburnum oyster veneer desk.

    Really lovely warm and great proportions and very visually beautiful, unusual, and of very good color and patination.

    The oyster veneer got its name from the shape of the oyster shell, the veneer is achieved by is using thin slices of wood branches or roots cut in cross-sections,  resulting in circular or oval pieces of veneer which are laid side by side in furniture to produce various decorative patterns.

    Old replacement worn leather top beneath two central drawers and six smaller drawers. The desk benefits from a working lock and key.

    We feel the kneehole desk was adapted from a 17th-century chest-on-chest.

    Condition

    Very good antique condition. Some scuffs to the leather and some little nicks just what you would expect for a piece that is over 300 years old.
