Here is an example of a stunning quality antique French 3ft 2⅝” oak and leather carved partner’s desk, circa 1850, in excellent original condition. The desk incorporates a good quality green leather with elegant gold tooling, which is bordered by a large thumb moulded top. If you prefer different colour leather, we can replace it with a colour of your choice. Below, there are three working drawers to the top section. The drawers feature deep cushion fronted panels with geometric mouldings and solid oak drawer linings. The drawers also boast their original oval shaped brass drop handles.
The pedestals feature lovely carved floral moulded hinged door panels, flanked by demi-circle ring turned column supports. Behind these door panels is a bank of three drawers in one pedestal, and a cupboard with two oak shelves in the other pedestal. These cupboards make ideal storage compartments for files. The drawer and cupboard setup is mirrored on both sides of the desk, so that each person has a combination of drawers and cupboards. All pedestal doors retain their original working locks and key. The sides of the desk boast lovely fielded panels with carved mouldings to the upper section.
The pedestals sit on their original square corner reeded plinths and terminate on reeded bun feet. 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. As this is a large desk, it means there is significant storage space available.
This desk features a rich dark golden brown oak 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 they have received.
This item would look superb in a variety of rooms from the work place to the home office. This item would certainly grace any home and is a great investment as it is extremely functional. So don’t miss out your chance to own a lovely piece of furniture.
This desk is in excellent original condition. Nominal old use marks to the leading edges of the desk but nothing significant considering the age of the item.

The drawer linings and cupboard shelves are all constructed from solid oak. All drawers run smoothly and close flush to the frame. All drawers and cupboards feature the original working locks with keys. This desk is solid in joint and ready to use.
