VERY LARGE SOLID OAK ANTIQUE PANELLED PARTNERS PEDESTAL DESK EARLY C20th. A true partners desk, identical both front and back with a total of 14 drawers and 4 pull out platform slides. The front and back of the desk each have 6 drawers, 1 double filing drawer in the right pedestal and a pair of pull out platform slides which are useful as additional surfaces to work off. Shaped flat to the centre, allowing for extra leg room. Stunning panelling on the pedestal sides (all sides). The top has been inlaid with olive coloured hide leather and gilding decoration. It is very rare to find a partners desk of this size. It is unusually large and a mirror image on both sides. This desk separates into 3 main pieces for easy transportation (+14 drawers). Total Dimensions (inches): W65″ x D53″ x H29.5. Total Dimensions (cm): 165cm x 135cm x 75cm. Pedestal Dimension : W16″ x D51.5″ x 28.5. Desk Top: W65″ x D53″ x H1. Solid original condition with obvious age and wear to the finish. It looks like it has been previously restored but probably long ago as there is evidence of laquer/paint dripping inside the drawers. Pedestals are solid with a few scuff marks. Original condition with patinated brass handles. Would probably need to be waxed on the base for a smoother slide. There are laquer drippings inside the drawers. Inlaid with olive coloured leather which shows signs of age and wear and tear. The staining (lacquer) on the desk top has a few fading spots mainly where the arms rest on the desk (pic 9). Slight bubbling/warping on veneer shown in pic 10 & 11. Over the years, the top has been secured and unsecured (screw & unscrewed) numerous times as evident in pictures shown with numerous screw holes and patch work on the underside of the desk top. But in recent years, we have just freely laid the top on without securing (screwing) to the pedestal – it is does not move and still feels solid and secure due to the weight of the wooden oak top. Pictures taken with table top laid freely on pedestal. Pedestal can positioned wider apart, however we wanted the pedestals to sit on our rug. Please refer to all pictures for closer inspection or feel free to message me for further details or pictures. I’m happy to provide more pictures. Collection only – from TN4.
