Tall adjustable vintage industrial desk, often referred to as a factory table, ideal for standing/working at on a factory floor. Was also commonly used as a supervisor’s / manger’s table, would have been used in large textile mills, factories & printers, during the industrial revolution (where / when oversight was key to mass-production and busy assembly-line environments) up until modernization. Because its made for working-at while standing, in busy environments, its tall & small, narrow, & freestanding, which makes it movable, and/or somewhat portable.  Today its also (often searched for as) an antique schoolmaster’s desk w/an adjustable lamp.

Quite the multi-functional piece, as it makes for the Perfect, Vintage Host/Hostess Station, with the built-in lamp. Because it’s an adjustable stand (the height of the desktop) & a mobile/moveable table (with cast iron rollers/casters attached), plus a custom privacy-panel and small storage drawer, this table / desk will work well as a Guest-Services/Reception Stand. Originally, hand-built and constructed using a cast-iron v-frame base, that extends up/holds a steel tubular stand and the mahogany desk & all its unique, built-in features, above the tubular stand. Sturdy & very-functional, made using top-quality materials (all mahogany, steel & cast-iron). Because of it’s unique features & dimensions, this stand fits perfectly within a small foyer, entryway or even hallway. This piece will serve well in both residential (vintage decorative piece) and/or commercial environments (very popular in B&Bs, pubs, restaurants & clubs). Quite the unique piece, in excellent, if not perfect condition.
