Object Description

An Exceptional Quality Regency Period Mahogany And Brass, Square, Partners Writing Table, Having Attractive Gilt Tooled Leather Top With Crossbanded Edge, Over Four Drawers And Four False Drawers To Frieze, With Original Brass Moulded Decoration And Replacement Brass Star Handles, Raised On Exceptionally Elegant Turned Tapering Legs, Headed By Reeded Decoration, Terminating On Later Brass Cup Castors.

This fabulous quality regency writing table is a great example of the sterotypical, high end regency furniture which was being produced in the top workshops of the early 19th century. Indeed the brass detailed decoration, along with the distinctive reeded decoration to the top of the turned leg, along with the exceptional overall quality suggest that this partners writing table could possibly be attributed to the well known workshops of John Mclean, one of the very best cabinet makers around at the time.

It is quite unusual to find a perfectly square example of a table like this, but we think it really adds to the appeal and overall elegance. Whilst still obviously great as a typical writing table we also feel that the shape adds to the appeal of this table as a library table, a sofa table or possibly even an entrance hall table.

As is typical with a partners writing table or partners desk, it is big enough to stand centrally and allows access to drawers from opposing sides, meaning that two people could comfortably work together at this table. It is also a nice feature that both of the sides are finished in the same manner as the front and back, with false drawer fronts, meaning that the table looks basically indentical from all perspectives.

Overall the condition is good, with an extremely attractive almost new leather to the top, replacement handles and various old repairs and restorations as one would expect, none of which are aesthetically displeasing and the table is very much fit for original purpose with working keys to the drawers.

As with all items we offer for sale this partners writing table has been inspected and attended to in our workshops, by our highly skilled, trained traditional antique furniture restorers and received a natural wax polish before being placed on sale, ensuring it is ready for immediate placement within the home or office.
