Small Oak Writing Desk & Chair by Lamb of Manchester c.1870.

Super quality little writing table and chair by the celebrated English cabinet makers Lamb of Manchester c.1870. Ingenious design desk with an inkstand and pen tray hidden below a folding lid with flush fitting brass handle so as not to clutter the work space. Retaining the original tooled leather skiver and with a single oak lined drawer below, flanked with swept supports with a carved detail also repeated on the rear. Raised on particularly good turned reeded and fluted legs with the original castors by Cope & Collinson. Clearly stamped Lamb Manchester on the top of the drawer front. Obvious wear to the leather which could be replaced if preferred. Otherwise excellent condition.
Sold together with a matching oak chair, also by Lamb. With an unusual H shaped back rest between turned and fluted stiles with round pommel tops. Seat freshly upholstered in a grey chenile, raised on turned and fluted legs with brown pot castors. Stamped on the underside.
