This phenomenal drop front desk is made with superior craftsmanship and materials and is in exceptional original condition. Comprised of teak that has been carved on the drop front and the drawer faces with an incredible plum blossom and bird motif. The drop front is slanted above three rows of drawers. The top row having two drawers and the lower two a single full width drawer. All with recessed carved handles. Inside the drop front, besides the work surface, there is a removable cubby compartmentalized storage including a small drawer. This is made in the style of renowned Chinese furniture maker George Zee and Co. who made high quality teak and camphor wood furniture in Hong Kong from 1960s until 1997. We believe this piece to be mid-20th century from information garnered from the family of the original owner. SHHHHH but we hear the original owner may have obtained this piece during her travels while in the CIA. The iconic plum blossom carving symbolizes perseverance, hope, beauty, purity, virtue, and the transitoriness of life. We know you are in love with this fabulous piece. Make it yours.
