A Fine 19th Century Serpentine Mahogany Partner's Desk In The Manner Of Thomas Chippendale (circa 1880)

Status: This item has been sold
Sold by: Culvertons

This antique has been viewed 7 times in the past month with the most views from Germany.


When we were first offered this 19th Century mahogany serpentine partners desk, its potential, even after 140 years of use, was undeniable. Now, after many hours of sensitive restoration this elegant desk once again stands resplendent with its full set of original swan-necked handles ,hand-dyed and decorated leather writing surface set within carved floral border. Each of its hand-dovetailed oak-lined drawers and mahogany doors are secured with Bramah locks, and every one of these wonders of miniature engineering has been serviced by Bramah together with multiple keys cut to fit from their original pattern books. Not only does it stand well within a room, it also stands at the recommended height, with plenty of working space, storage and leg-room, making this desk very comfortable to work.
A lovely example of a finely constructed antique serpentine pedestal desk.
