For king and Country.

Here is a George the Fifth pedestal desk. The desk came in pieces consisting if the two pedestals and the top. The previous owner had painted the pedestals white for some reason. Underneath the paint is the GRV and crown motif. I stripped this back to reveal the monogram and also an inverted crescent logo. Possibly a makers mark. The wood looks in good condition under the paint so I am going to strip all the paint off and hopefully bring it back to its former glory. Two of the drawer locks also have the GRV monogram stamped on them. A lovely desk waiting to be restored.
