An exquisitely detailed and crafted desk illustrating the high level of craftsmanship by the Danish cabinetmakers. The face of the top drawers is one continuous piece of rosewood, and each drawer pull is a single turned piece of ebony. The writing surface is made of a solid piece of rosewood that ends in carved pulls, allowing the writing surface to be pulled forward for use.
