Emmy - Writing Desk / Bureau

£0.01 (Sold out)

Meet Emmy – a beautiful vintage style mahogany bureau which we’ve restored and painted in a soft mauve purple on the exterior and a dark grey on the interior. She’s been fitted with a new black leather inlay with gold leaf gilding and black fine felt strips on the desk top side rests.

She has antique vintage style brass drawer pulls, which we’ve brushed with a little gold leaf to enhance their look. She also has three drawers below the desk and inside the desk itself two shallow top dividers with one drawer in between and four fixed dividers, two on each side.  A new key has been cut which works both in the lock on the desk lid and the three drawers. The key has also been brushed with a little gold leaf.

Emmy has the most stunning claw ball feet; a real feature of the Edwardian era of furniture design, made to look like the feet of a bird or eagle. The balls themselves have been brushed with gold leaf. And, as a little nod to these uniquely carved feet, we’ve crafted out of real pheasant feathers, fine silk thread and worsted wool, a very elegant key tassel to add an elegant finishing touch.

This is a striking vintage piece which will look ideal in a study or a corner of a living room, or even a bedroom - anywhere where one may feel inspired to put pen to paper!

All of Clementene's painted furniture is lovingly restored and fit for purpose. Please note that some pieces may have suffered a few knocks and scrapes before it came to Clementenes. After all, it’s what gives the furniture its personality and charm. Clementene repairs what needs repairing, but as for any little imperfections she embraces these and will often highlight them as a feature. Clementene will always do her best to show sizeable bumps (if any) in her photographs. Although she hopes that if you’ve come this far, you’ll welcome the unique character of each piece as much as she does!

The odd bump and bruise...
