Anglo-Indian Teakwood Partners’ DeskLate 19th century
A British colonial teakwood pedestal partners’ desk with an inset black leather panel within a rectangular teakwood top with rounded corners. The deep frieze houses a short drawer at either side. The central kneehole is flanked by two pedestals with on the left side a paneled door that opens to reveal three shelves and on the other side three drawers. A conforming arrangement is found at the other side of the desk. All drawers are fitted with wooden handles.
The desk stands on eight short legs and consists of three parts: the top and the two pedestals.
The desk is in excellent condition and has been lovingly restored and finished to its former glory using a traditional form of French polishing and waxing.Calcutta
