The Antique Partners Desk was first seen in the late Georgian period in Britain. It was designed for professionals with larger offices, like banks, solicitors and accountants. These new larger desks had a working bank of drawers and cupboards on both sides enabling two people to sit and work at them on either side comfortably and facing each other. Antique partners desks were real statement pieces and came with a generous sized knee hole, ideal to fit an office chair. Because these pieces of antique furniture were built for professional tradesmen or senior officials, they were high up in society therefore they are usually constructed from superb quality timbers as no expense would have been spared in making them. They will usually have high quality brass wear, along with leather tops and made from solid timbers such as Mahogany, Oak or Walnut. Have a look below at our lovely examples available for sale.
