Here is an example of a fine quality antique English 4ft 6” mahogany and leather carved partner’s desk, circa 1860, in good condition. The desk benefits from a good quality new green inset leather decorated with with elegant gold tooling, which is bordered by mahogany banding and a thumb moulded top. If you prefer different colour leather, we can replace it with a colour of your choice for an additional £150.
The desk incorporates 9 graduated working drawers (for ample storage space), which retain their original working locks and key. All drawers are mahogany lined, feature hand dovetailing and boast quarter beading (a sign of quality). They also retain their original mahogany turned knobs.
The pedestals sit on their original moulded plinths and castors, allowing the desk to be moved. The desk is freestanding which means it can be situated in the centre of the room. The desk can be dismantled into three sections for easy transport and access into the home.
This desk features a rich, warm brown mahogany colour. As it boasts the original polish, it has a fantastic colour and patination; this can only be achieved through age and the years of care and cleaning it has received.
