British Colonial Rosewood Partners’ Desk

Mid 19th century

SGD 6,500

A British colonial rosewood partners’ desk with a rectangular moulded top with egg and dart carving on the sides. It features a black leather writing insert and sits above an arched frieze with two drawers with rosewood pulls on both sides. The desk stands on four carved legs that are bulbous at the top, tapering and ending in a ring and a peg foot.
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.

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.
