An impressive and imposing large bespoke oval flame mahogany Partners Pedestal Desk .This substantial Georgian Revival desk has been skilfully crafted from fine quality flame mahogany and the oval top features an attractive inset hand tooled leather writing surface.
The drawers are all oak-lined and offer plenty of storage space and as you will no doubt know, originally, partners desks were made to be shared. Accordingly, this partners desk is free standing and has been skilfully finished to the same visual standard on both the front and the back.
The oval sides of the desk are finished with smart dummy drawers. The principle side of the desk has three drawers in the frieze above three drawers in one pedestal and a drawer situated above a double-depth filing drawer in the other. The other side of the desk also has three drawers in the frieze but there is a cupboard with a central shelf in each pedestal, and the doors are made to look like banks of drawers.
This desk would partner very nicely with one of our range of leather desk chairs.
Condition:In excellent condition, please see photos for confirmation.

Thomas Sheraton-18thcentury furniture designer, once characterized mahogany as "best suited to furniture where strength is demanded as well as a wood that works up easily, has a beautiful figure and polishes so well that it is an ornament to any room in which it may be placed." Matching his words to his work, Sheraton designed much mahogany furniture. The qualities that impressed Sheraton are particularly evident in a distinctive pattern of wood called "flame mahogany."
The flame figure in the wood is revealed by slicing through the face of the branch at the point where it joins another element of the tree.
