18th Century Italian Walnut Desk and Three Chairs

A marvelous 18th century Italian writing table with the three chairs from Florence, Italy. This desk is an example of country Italian furniture. Simple but elegant. Strong but utilitarian. Modest but well-made. The desk has a shaped top and a drawer to the apron and  splay legs. The chairs were made for this desk. Rustic with a slight carving to the splat. Fantastico!!! Circa 1770-1790.

Desk – 55.5″ wide x 35.5″ deep x 31.25″ tall

Chairs – 18.5″ wide x 19″ deep x 42″ tall.       Seat Height – 19″ tall
