Measuring over seven feet wide, this outstanding Georgian pedestal desk is crafted in an exceptional demi-lune shape. Crafted of luxurious Cuban mahogany, this stately desk is an imposing figure, its refined structure boasting 9 spacious drawers , all perfectly fitted to curve with the desk's shape, cabinet at the front, and numerous false drawers and doors. Understated brass pulls in the Neoclassical style and a fine leather-covered top complete this stunning piece.

The demi-lune,  or "half-moon," style first became popular in France during the 1750s, and appeared in the elegant Neoclassical style. Often made from materials like mahogany, satinwood or walnut, the demi-lune form has been interpreted by many a master craftsman, and tables can be found in a variety of different styles, from Rococo to Sheraton. The most popular form is the table, which, because of the unique shape, can be placed against a wall when not needed. It is quite rare to find a desk in this impressive shape. 

Circa 1880
