1920s wooden school desk

This delightful school desk from the 1920s comes from the Boarezzo colony of the Italian Touring Club in the Alps. Towards the end of the First World War, a welcoming center was built for orphans of war and in need of care, equipped with furniture tailored for them. The wooden desk is produced by G. Palini & Figli, builders of furniture and school supplies, Pisogne (Brescia), as stated by the metal plate on the front of the desk.

The desk has unusually decorative, slightly curved legs that lifts it out of the ordinary. It also has a shelf used for storing books that can today store a laptop or other material. Great as a compact work station.

Found in Milan.

Condition: Very good. The desk is of solid construction with some minor scratches and patina due to its age and use. Has been restored at an earlier date. 

Dimensions: H 73cm x D 39cm x W 75cm
