This unusual Victorian ornate antique partners desk is made of the best quality mahogany timbers.
It has very unusual carved designs and blind fret carving on the edge of the writing top, the drawer fronts and the cupboards.
The ornate decoration to all sides of the desk shows it was designed to be a centre piece of an office or library. It is a very useful size being almost square, measuring 51 inches x 45 inches, and has a very substantial feel for a smaller sized partners desk.
The top is fitted with a new black writing surface with gold and blind tooling surrounded by a 3 inch border of attractively figured mahogany. The bull nosed edge is carved in a leaf pattern and there are 3 drawers fitted beneath on each writing side.
The pedestals each have 3 drawers to the front and cupboards to the reverse which are fitted with two drawers with counter sunk brass handles.
The cupboards have the original keys for the side fitted locks. The pedestals stand on platform bases with hidden castors.
The drawers are ash and pine lined and retain their original locks stamped with the Royal Cypher.
The turned wooden handles are also original to the desk.
This fine antique Victorian partners desk has a beautiful bright mahogany colour with deeper tones in the figuring of the timber. The desk has developed a good patina and is overall a very attractive piece of furniture.
The desk in three parts for ease of movement and installation.
