Charles Dickens's Desk and Chair

This desk and chair was used by Charles Dickens in his final home, Gad's Hill Place in Kent. The table is believed to be where he wrote the classics Great Expectations, Our Mutual Friend and The Mystery of Edwin Drood. The grant has enabled the desk and chair to remain on permanent display in Dickens's study at 48 Doughtry Street.
