Antique Writing Desk made from 19th Century Church Organ

Sterling, VA
Posted 1 month ago in Antiques


Used (normal wear)
This beautiful, one of a kind writing desk was created by an artisan in Maryland, who expertly merged an antique 19th century church organ console with a 19th century table of the same wood variety. Its elaborately carved edges and original music stand speak to the craftsmanship not only of the 1800’s, but also of the skill and artistry of the man who took these two neglected pieces and breathed new life into them as a truly unique desk. The desk features the original organ stops, once used to adjust the tones of the organ. Below are the original foot pedals, used to pump air through the organ to create beautiful music. The organ itself was rescued from an historic church in Maryland. I also have the original keys from the organ’s keyboard, if you want them. I had originally hoped to incorporate them into a painting, but never had time to finish the project.
This piece is absolutely one of a kind! It’s perfect for any music lover, musician, or rare antiques collector. Asking $250/obo.
Thank you!
