George III Chippendale Period Mahogany Partners Desk

George III 18th Century mahogany partners desk concealing twenty-four small drawers. In the manner of Thomas Chippendale.

The original sectioned and tooled leather top sits above two short and three long quill/pen drawers to each side neatly concealed in the freeze above an intricate blind-fretwork of Chippendale design. The pedestals are raised on moulded plinths of architectural form with the original carrying handles to the sides. Faced with oak-lined graduating and cock-beaded drawers and similarly to the reverse. However, to the reverse, are superbly executed ‘dummy’ drawers, opening to reveal twenty-four small drawers, beautifully inset with letters of the alphabet and brass knobs.

‘The Gentleman & Cabinet-Makers Director’ By Thomas Chippendale. You will note the close resemblance to this desk and that from designs by Chippendale ‘Library Table’ No.LXXIX.

It should also be noted that the original tooled burgundy well-patinated leather could not be any nicer, it is just so atmospheric with all of the age-related marks you could possibly wish for, it tells a story. You can clearly see where a ledger has sat to the ‘boss’ side, with ink spills, few cigarette burns and varying colours all softly blended and attract.
