circa: 2000 width: 70 height: 32 length: 37 This beautiful English breakfront partners pedestal desk is hand-made using the same techniques that were employed by the master craftsmen of the Victorian and Georgian periods. The wood is beautiful, being hand-distressed, hand-finished and hand-polished. Optional satinwood, rosewood, walnut or oak banding around the drawer fronts also contrasts beautifully with the wood. The top of this desk is a writing surface of fine leather, available in brown, green, black or burgundy, bordered with a hand-worked pattern of gold tooling. The leather makes an excellent writing surface, much better than wood, glass, or metal. The hardware on this partners desk is elegant solid brass with the drawer pulls being swan neck style.
