A fine Art Deco desk by Maurice Adams, with four drawers to each side and a central door, each with circular turned handles. A pull out slide to each side, to enable a further working area. The central drawer, once locked, also simultaneously locks the other eight drawers. Makers label to the front left hand drawer. Designed to face a room if required. Raised on small bun feet, that have built in wheels, enabling easy movement of this heavy desk when required. A quality piece throughout.
All our furniture is professionally polished and restored where necessary. Our restorer has over 40 years of furniture restoration experience including 15 years living at Windsor Castle whilst restoring furniture for the Royal household, so comes highly recommended. This desk’s original leather surface has been cleaned and polished to continue to preserve it.
Maurice Adams saw himself as the natural successor to the great furniture makers of the eighteenth century and had ambitious plans for 20th-century British interior design. All Adams’s furniture was made by hand in Gloucester and displayed in Adams’s showroom in Portman Square, London. An example of this desk can be seen on page 96, of the book, ‘Modern Decorative Art’ by Maurice S.R. Adams. 1930, as pictured.
