PLEASE SCROLL DOWN FOR MULTIPLE PHOTOS
NOTE: All of our antiques are direct from Europe. I personally select each item for the quality, design and unique characteristics that you will always find in our distinctive inventory at Geaux Vintage Antiques!
The desk is in good condition for its age, c1880 or earlier, with normal signs of age and use, dings, scratches and other imperfections. The carvings are wonderful and ALL the drop down finials are present on the four canted corners…VERY hard-to-find. There's a couple of surface separations on the topmost layer of the desktop and the top finish is aged & spotted, lighter colour than the lower…very common and something we see in almost every one of these bureau plats. I always provide multiple photos that should be considered as part of the description and I encourage you to email me with any questions you might have prior to offerding. Please keep in mind antique furniture should be purchased for its uniqueness, higher quality material and craftsmanship and antique patina, charm and character….NOT for like-new condition!!!
Professional packaging and shipping on this item will require freight service due to the large size. There are several options:
The difference is cost and timing.
**Some of our less expensive blanket wrap service companies will take 4 - 6 weeks. They do an outstanding job, but the time frame may not meet your needs**
**Other shippers can be utilized for a 3-4 week .**
Please email me with your preference on shipping time AND your zip code for estimate.
