17937 Kittinger Executive Leather Top Desk
We are pleased to be offering today this beautiful Chippendale ball and claw leather top mahogany executive desk made by one of the better furniture makers of this century: Kittinger out of Buffalo, New York. It is all stamped, has a metal tag and the paper label. This desk came out of an east coast estate. It has dove tail drawer workmanship on one side with two large drawers and two small drawers with a center pull out. The other side has simulated drawers, but there are no working drawers. The top is bordered in a mahogany 1.5 inch border frame and 1 inch in the center with an antique gold tooled embossed green leather triple panel insert that is stunning against he brown mahogany stain finish. The original Chippendale brass hardware is intact on all the drawers. The desk is 72 inches wide, 36 inches deep and 31 inches high. Where the chair sits is 25 inches wide. It has a pull out work tray on the front that is perfect for a keyboard. These legs haven’t been damaged which is surprising as they have usually been dragged, but these legs are perfect. The overall condition is real nice. The top has a little wear on the leather edge that will wax color back in. It has minor marks on the leather that can likely be tuned up with conditioners. I am guessing the desk dates from the 1970's-1980s. Purchased at the same time is a red leather genuine Kittinger desk chair, which we have also listed. So, please check to see if it is still available as it was listed separately as we could save you money on shipping. Shipping starts at $385 for a driveway delivery in our normal area which is New England. Please contact us prior to purchase with your zip code to confirm what it would cost you if outside of New England for shipping.
