An early 19th. Century figured mahogany partners pedestal desk,  the rectangular, crossbanded moulded edge top  inset with a gilt tooled green leather writing surface, with three frieze drawers to each side the panel sided pedestals fitted three drawers each to one side with lockable stiles , the other with  cupboards and the whole raised on plinth bases with casters under.

Circa 1840                                  Price :£ 5,950-00p.

Height:29.5”,75 cms, Width:54”, 137 cms, Depth:36”, 92 cms.

Note: The locking bars for the pedestal drawers is what we see on contemporary Wellington Chests and is a more secure way of locking these particularly in this instance where the hinged stiles have upstands secured behind the top frieze drawers when shut. Only once the frieze drawer has been unlocked and opened slightly, is it possible to access the pedestal drawers. This would suggest that either this desk was made by a cabinetmaker renowned for his Wellington Chests or that the client just wanted far greater security than on a normal desk.

Delivery in the UK mainland is included in the marked price.
