A 'RUPERT GRIFFITHS' 'MONASTIC WOODCRAFT LTD'

HAND CRAFTED SOLID OAK FIVE DRAWER

KNEEHOLE / WRITING DESK.

 

 

A VERY ATTRACTIVE, MID - LATE 20th CENTURY, 'ARTS AND CRAFTS STYLE', SOLID OAK, KNEEHOLE, WRITING DESK, OF EXCEPTIONAL QUALITY AND CONDITION. THIS FABULOUS OAK DESK WAS MADE BY THE 'RUPERT GRIFFITHS' 'MONASTIC WOODCRAFT LTD' FURNITURE COMPANY, OF BRAILSFORD, DERBYSHIRE, ENGLAND. THE FURNITURE IS STILL BEING MADE TODAY BY HIS SON 'NIGEL GRIFFITHS' WHO'S WORKSHOP / SHOWROOM IS NOW BASED AT THE OLD CHEESE FACTORY GRANGEMILL, DERBYSHIRE. EACH ITEM OF FURNITURE IS INDIVIDUALLY CRAFTED, WITH 'HAND CUT' DOVETAILS AND IS PLANED, SANDED, CARVED, STAINED AND POLISHED ALL BY HAND. THE WRITING DESK IS CONSTRUCTED USING TRADITIONAL METHODS AND ONLY THE VERY BEST QUALITY SOLID OAK TIMBER AND FINISHES ARE USED THROUGH-OUT, INCLUDING THE BACK, BASE AND ALL THE INTERIOR LININGS. THE DESK HAS A LARGE SPACIOUS WORK AREA TOP, WHICH HAS TRADITIONAL 'STRAIGHT CUT' EDGES AND ROUNDED CORNERS. THERE ARE A TOTAL OF FIVE DRAWERS BELOW THE 'OVER-SAILING' TOP, WHICH PROVIDE VERY USEFUL STORAGE SPACE. THERE ARE TWO DEEP DRAWERS ON EITHER SIDE OF THE DESK, WITH AN ADDITIONAL, SECRET, 'PLAIN-FRONTED' OAK DRAWER ABOVE THE KNEEHOLE. THE FOUR SIDE DRAWERS ALL HAVE 'PLAIN-CUT' SOLID OAK FRONTS AND THEY ALSO RETAIN THEIR ORIGINAL TURNED OAK / 'CHOP-CARVED' KNOBS. THE DRAWER SIDES, EDGES AND RUNNERS HAVE ALSO BEEN WAXED TO ELIMINATE WEAR, STICKING DRAWERS AND UNNECESSARY DAMAGE. THE DESK KNEEHOLE IS LINED WITH SOLID OAK, 'FIELDED' PANELS, WHICH ARE SET WITHIN A SOLID OAK FRAME-WORK. THE DESK HAS MATCHING SOLID OAK PANELLED SIDES AGAIN WITH ATTRACTIVE 'FIELDED' BORDERS, SET WITHIN THE SUBSTANTIAL OAK FRAME-WORK. THE BACK OF THE DESK IS ALSO FINISHED WITH SOLID OAK 'FIELDED' PANELS AND IS STAINED AND POLISHED SO THE DESK CAN BE POSITIONED IN THE CENTRE OF A ROOM, IF REQUIRED. THE DESK HAS VISIBLE 'PEGGED JOINTS THROUGH-OUT, FOR ADDITIONAL STRENGTH AND IT IS RAISED UPON 'ARTS AND CRAFTS STYLE' SQUARE SUPPORTS, SET WITHIN, STYLISH, 'OUT-STRETCHED', 'SLEDGE FEET'. THE DESK FRAME IS ALSO STAMPED / BRANDED WITH THE 'MONASTIC WOODCRAFT LTD' BEETLE, WHICH IS ATTRIBUTED TO THE MAKER 'RUPERT GRIFFITHS'. THIS SUPERIOR QUALITY, 'RUPERT GRIFFITHS', 'HAND-CRAFTED', SOLID OAK, KNEEHOLE, WRITING DESK HAS BEEN PROFESSIONALLY RESTORED. IT HAS BEEN CLEANED, RE-POLISHED, IT IS IN EXCELLENT CONDITION THROUGH-OUT AND WOULD BE A VERY USEFUL AND ATTRACTIVE ADDITION TO ANY HOME OR OFFICE!
