Functional and Stylish Antique Partners Desks

At Regent Antiques, we are delighted to offer for sale a superb selection of antique partners desks.

Partners desks were made to enable two people to work together at the same time on one desk, hence the term “partners desk”. 

Finished on both sides, antique partners desks provide access to storage on each side of the desk and make it possible for two people to work at it in comfort, facing each other.

Another reason for their popularity is that they are not restricted to being placed against a wall. Instead, they can be placed anywhere in a room and still look good all round since they are finished on both sides.

Stunning Antique Partners Desks from Regent Antiques

There’s nothing so important to an efficient and effective working environment than a desk that is both functional and which feels great to sit and work at. At Regent Antiques, we take this into account and offer a range of antique partners desks that are not only visually appealing but also extremely practical and comfortable to sit at.

One such example is this fabulous antique Victorian flame mahogany inverted breakfront partners pedestal desk, dating from circa 1880. 

The shaped rectangular top features a stunning inset gold tooled green leather writing surface. 

This lovely antique desk provides plenty of storage space for your stationery or personal items as it is fitted with three frieze drawers and three further drawers in each pedestal with a pair of cupboard doors verso, all between fluted projecting columns to the angles. The drawers are all mahogany lined with hand-cut dovetails and fitted with the original hand carved handles.

The desk is raised on plinth bases fitted with the original brass and porcelain castors, and it is complete with working locks and keys. 

Whether you need it for your home or office, we are certain that this fine desk will fit the bill.

Another remarkable example is this magnificent antique William IV partners writing table, dating from circa 1830.

This superb desk is crafted from beautiful flame mahogany and is raised on four elegant octagonal tapering legs that terminate in their original brass castors.

The rectangular top features a moulded edge with an inset gold-tooled green leather writing surface over four drawers, two on either side. 

Being a partners desk, this splendid piece is finished on all sides so it can stand freely in the middle of a room, which makes it extremely suitable for a large home or office.

To finish off in style, we have a beautiful antique flame mahogany twin pedestal partners desk in the stunning George III manner, dating from circa 1870.

The rectangular desk is of inverted breakfront outline and the top features an inset three part blind tooled tan leather writing surface above three frieze drawers on the front with dummy drawers on the rear. The desk has three graduated drawers in each pedestal on the front side and a pair of capacious cupboards on the other side.

The drawers are lined in solid oak, have wonderful carved decoration and are fitted with the original brass handles. The desk is raised on plinths with inset brass castors and is supplied with working locks with key.

It is a very impressive desk which is certain to both look good and prove to be very useful in the home or at the workplace.
