Here is an example of a very good quality antique Victorian 5ft mahogany and leather partner’s desk, circa 1860, in excellent condition. The desk boasts a green leather top featuring elegant gold tooling, which is bordered by a very nice rounded thumb moulded top. Below, there are 9 graduated working drawers to one side. The cushion-fronted drawers boast the original brass key escutcheons and original brass swan neck handles. All drawers and cupboard doors feature working locks and keys. To the back of the desk, there are a further three working drawers and below, there are two large working fielded panel cupboards, with hinged doors, each having a shelf. These cupboards make ideal storage compartments. All drawers are constructed with solid mahogany drawer linings, which have been hand-dovetailed; they also feature quarter beading internal corner strips (a sign of quality). The pedestals sit on their original rounded corner plinths. The desk is freestanding which means it can be situated in the centre of the room. The pedestals can also be rotated to allow you to either have all drawers on one side, or have one cupboard and a set of drawers each side. 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.
If you do not like the colour of the leather, we can replace it with a different colour leather, for an additional £300.
This desk features a rich brown & red 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 they have received.
