Vintage Industrial Esavian School Headmasters Desk


INC. VAT @20%

A stunning vintage school teachers desk often referred to as the 'Headmasters Desk' designed by James Leonard for Esavian (The Education Supply Association ESA) Circa 1948.

Excellent restored condition.

James Leonard worked as a designer for ESA during the late 1940s through to the 60s using post war modernist methods of industrial manufacture, ESA used recycled surplus wartime aircraft materials such as cast aluminum.

Featuring a stunning solid teak top which we have fully restored, this desk is rare as it features two solid teak fronted drawers instead of the usual one. Tapered, hollow cast aluminum legs which create an effective contrast with the teak top and drawers.

A beautiful and rare desk that would make a great addition to any vintage/Industrial/mid-century inspired interior. A great example of a post war British design classic.
