Mid-Century Desk Reclaimed From New Scotland Yard HQ


A vintage, 1950s mahogany desk salvaged from the Metropolitan police headquarters, New Scotland Yard, before it relocated.

This handsome desk features a dark leatherette top and solid wood frame. A very interesting provenance the desk offers a functional and robust piece of furniture.

The simple geometric structure is a fine example of furniture design produced during the mid-century period.
