Large Mahogany Pedestal Desk By Cooke's Finsbury Ltd, dated c. 1910.  Complete with key and original working locks.


Features of antique partner desks such as this one are the high quality brass wear, solid Mahogany timber and the leather top. The quality and finish of this desk is superb and made to exacting standards. Wear and tear over the past 100 years adds character and history to this piece. A modern equivalent would cost around £10 k if made to a bespoke order.

Cooke's of Finsbury Ltd Mahogany Partners Desk

  • This solid desk is panelled and polished on all sides meaning it could stand in the centre of a room rather than against a wall. Fluted detail to the frame and raised on tapered legs, the desk features 6 drawers - the bottom drawer on the right hand side is double depth with a shaped divider for files. There are also a pair of useful pull out platform mahogany slides located under the desk top, to the left and right. The solid mahogany wood has an excellent colour and condition and the top of the desk features the original tooled leather skiver and all the original brass hardware is in place.

    The maker’s label (Cooke's of Finsbury) is present in the centre drawer and all the original drawer locks are present and have been tested with the one key which works for all locks.

    As you would expect with an antique of this age, there is some related wear and tear and this has been documented in the photographs. There is a historic repair to the bottom right of the double drawer on the righthand pedestal. There are a few knocks especially around the edges and to the legs and the original leather skiver shows wear but could easily be replaced. All wear is commensurate with use and adds to the appeal and character of this item. The desk has been lightly cleaned, waxed and polished and is ready for use.

    Delivery would require two people or additional assistance at delivery point.
