British Colonial Rosewood and Mahogany Partners’ DeskMid 19th century
An antique British colonial partners’ desk with a nicely contrasting mahogany top within a rosewood frame. It sits above a deep frieze with four drawers on both sides, each drawer with the original recessed brass handles. the desk is made in the form of a partners’ desk, i.e. with fittings on both sides so that it can also easily stand in the centre of a room. The desk stands on four attractive reeded legs that are bulbous at the top, tapering and flare out at the bottom to end in a bun foot.
The desk is in good condition and has been lovingly restored and finished to its former glory using a traditional form of French polishing and waxing. The rosewood and mahogany has a rich warm shade with a striking grain.
