The woods used in the Victorian period were mainly mahogany and rosewood but you can also find many Victorian desks made of oak because this wood was in abundance. The introduction of iron to furniture in the early Victorian period gave the furniture makers of this time new scope for new ideas. The styles of the Victorian age, were Arts and Crafts and the household name of Art Nouveau which is highly collectable today. Look out for Victorian pedestal desks and ladies writing desks.
