Beautiful four-drawer antique Chinese writing desk from early 19th century. Disassembles into 4 pieces for travel, with two pedestal drawer units on either side made from ma wu wood, linked by two rosewood panels to form the main surface of the desk. It has the original brassware on the drawer fronts.
Originally purchased in 1997 from Altfield Gallery in Princes Building, Central I still have the original invoice and Certificate of Antiquity. Original price at Altfield was HKD26,000 and my guess is that would be well in excess of HKD40,000 today. The desk is not quite in "as new" condition but pretty close.
Dimensions - Width 154cm x Depth 77cm x Height 84cm.
This is a reluctant sale but it has to go so I’m open to reasonable offers.
