01 August 2012Written by ATG Reporter

This 19th century metamorphic mahogany estates writing desk will appear at Diamond Mills & Co’s sale in Felixstowe on August 8.

With an enclosed top revealing three rising compartments, by family repute it was once the property of a former Mayor of Bristol, and then by descent.

The 3ft 9in (1.1m) long desk is estimated at £800-1200.
