1950's vintage Air Force Blue metal desk with Forbo linoleum top. This stunning desk came from the RAF Linton-on-Ouse base in North Yorkshire. After a rather hard life we have restored it to its former glory and fitted a new Forbo linoleum top. We prefer to leave pieces as original as possible but occasionally we find something that just deserves saving even if it needs some TLC.
We have colour matched the original Air Force blue. The desk is not stamped with a maker but this is common practice for some government supply contracts. Please note that all the drawers have been serviced and run well. The desk retains its original lock but at some stage the internal lock workings have been damaged and cannot be repaired although we have found a replacement key that allows it to be 'closed' snugly, but not locked.
Our workshop team inspect every product and carry out any needed repairs to ensure that everything leaves us serviced and maintained ready for many more years of life.
All of our vintage products show the rich beauty and history of their life with the knocks and bumps of many years of use and we try to minimise restoration to keep every piece as original as possible.
