Anglo-Indian Teakwood Partners’ DeskLate 19th century
A British colonial teakwood pedestal partners’ desk with an inset black leather panel within a rectangular teakwood top with rounded corners. The central kneehole is flanked by two pedestals with on the left side one shelve and on the other side four drawers. Access to the pedestals can be locked by a panelled door. A conforming arrangement is found at the other side of the desk. All drawers fitted with recessed brass handles. Each pedestal has a flat plinth base around and is on the sides decorated with panels.
The desk consists of three parts: the top and the two pedestals.
The desk is in excellent condition and has been lovingly restored and finished to its former glory using a traditional form of French polishing and waxing.
