This is a truely Rare New Zealand Desk.
Rescued from the overflow shed of an unknown Museum this has been an amazing journey turning this much unloved and not well looked after desk into what it is today.
It almost comes to life as i go through the clean up process that showcases the magical grain only Mottled Kauri can produce!
There is every reason to Own this desk as Mottled kauri being a growth defect is no longer available. So rare this amazing Kauri grain is they resorted to splicing it into wood veneers to use on the draw fronts of high end built furniture. This Bently of Kauri-dom is the holy grail of desks.
I have carefully stripped back the dirty cratched up layers to reveal the magnificent grain this oiled and waxed finish has to offer.
Its about as perfect as you will get without it looking like it has been over restored.
Solid , no veneers, no borer and the original threaded crystal glass handles.
A simply stunning functional piece of Art that will not only look fantastic in any house but will be a great investment in years to come.
This Desk would have not come up for sale thanks to the Museum being full and I'm sure had they known that this Desk was built from one of the Rarest timbers in the world it would still be there today? How lucky we are!
