British Colonial Mahogany Partners’ DeskMid 19th century
A British colonial mahogany writing/partners desk with a rectangular moulded top with a black tooled leather writing insert. It sits above a deep frieze with floral carving, a rosewood moulded edge and two drawers on both sides with brass pulls.

Partners’ desks were first made to accommodate banking partners, usually senior bank officials who wished to work together while keeping the convenience and the prestige of a desk.
