Oak library style writing desk with red leather top, turned legs and three unusually deep drawers. Stamped for J & T Scott, 10 George Street, Edinburgh.
This desk has been sympathetically restored with minimum intervention to restore its function and practicality whilst retaining all the colour, wear and character that it has picked up over the last 120+ years. High quality red leather top from a Scottish company.

Clients included the Royal Society of Edinburgh and The Scottish National Portrait Gallery.
