This fabulous Arts & Crafts solid oak antique partners desk dates from the Victorian period, circa 1900. This superb quality desk has a very unusual locking mechanism by "Kaye's of Leeds, 93 High Holborn, London" which is fully working and comes complete with a single key. The desk has a rectangular moulded top with black tooled leather writing insert. The foremost side of the desk displays a wide mahogany lined drawer over a large knee hole flanked by two pedestals. Each pedestal contains four graduating mahogany lined drawers with moulded edges and beautifully figured quarter veneered oak fronts. Each drawer front also has a key hole, locking button and drop handle. The opposite side of the desk has a single pull out writing slide to the right and a cupboard door flanking either side of the knee hole. Both doors are beautifully figured and display decorative beading also seen on the side panels of the desk. The pedestals sit on moulded plinths and the desk can be split down into three sections to aid with removal. The quality and finish of this desk is superb made to exacting standards. The craftsmanship needed to work the quarter veneered panels and create the overall finish of the desk is self evident. It truly is a magnificent piece which, if commissioned today, would cost in the region of £10k to make to this specification with the same quality of materials. The oak is a lovely warm medium shade with a striking grain, good patina, is in very good condition and has been beautifully cleaned using a traditional form of wax finishing.
