Agatha Christie's Original Writing Table
Barry Cotton has recently sold Agatha Christie's original writing table.
The mid 19th century writing table was purchesed by Barry Cotton in 2009 from
an estate sale that included several pieces from the late Agatha Christies London
home. Agatha Christie is recognised as the worlds most prolific crime writer of all
time and it is so exciting to think that she must have writen some of her most famous
works on this very desk.
The desk had been stored in an attic for several years and was in a very sad state.
It was lovingly restored and given a new lease of life by Barry's expert restorers.
It was recently sold at the High Point Furniture Show in North Carolina, USA to a
designer working on behalf of a client who happens to be a writer!
Barry Cotton is delighted that this important desk with all its history has found such
a good home. We hope that it gives its new owner the same inspiration that it gave
