Handsome fine quality mahogany kneehole desk with a good burgundy leather, it has the very best quality Bramah locks complete with keys, it has a very unusual narrow cupboards to both ends of the desk which also lock,as shown in pictures 5 and 6, we can not be sure what this feature was used for, maybe maps perhaps, ideas welcome.
Even more interesting is the possibility that this desk was formerly in the possession of the only British Prime Minister to be assassinated in 1812. “Spencer Percival” …. although it would probably be better suited to a lady, a very good period desk.
