Antique Victorian desks are from Queen Victoria’s period of 1837 to 1901 and this was the time of industrial wealth so lots of new designs were made for all the new offices, Libraries and factories. These would range from the standard Pedestal to the much larger Partners desks in quality solid woods of Mahogany, Oak and Walnut. Unusual designs were built to commemorate famous people like the Dickens desk, supposedly Charles dickens wrote his novels on one, or to the Carlton House desk, named after The Prince Regents London residence Carlton House. The Victorian cabinet makers were all about usability, style, decoration and quality, so you can see a good varied selection from this period, some with leather writing surfaces to some being more simple in design. Most Victorian desks will either have a bank of drawers or cupboards, or occasionally a combination of the two together with quality brass or wood turned handles. Antique desks also usually split into several sections so they can easily be moved into a house and are finished on the back so maybe placed in the centre of a room if so desired .
