A lovely vintage French school desk with a refinished wooden top, metal frame, wooden shelf and side hook for a bag. The desk is the highest of the school desks so suitable for an adult. The top is well used, it is made up of pieces of solid oak wood with a dip for pencils at the back and a hole where the ink well would have been. There are many marks and imperfections as to expected as can be seen in the photos and the wooden shelf has ink stains towards the back. The blue metal frame has lots of marks and the paint has completely come off in places, this all adds to its vintage charm!

Width: 70cm
Depth: 44cm
Height: 65cm
