This extraordinary antique mahogany partner’s desk features a graceful serpentine form synonymous with the Rococo design pioneered by the famed Thomas Chippendale. Incorporating expertly carved molding and paneling on all sides, the desk is generously equipped with nine drawers on one side with faux drawers on the reverse. Fine brass hardware and the original tooled leather surface complete this magnificent 19th-century creation.

Partner’s desks were very utilitarian and often quite striking pieces of furniture, perfect in large libraries, studies and offices. The partner’s desk was so called because it was intended to seat business partners directly across from each other, with drawers and ample space on each side to accommodate daily work activities. These exceptional pieces of furniture were crafted by the most talented cabinetmakers of their time and were made to stand in the middle of the room versus against a wall.

Circa 1880
