This piece is a model of a desk that was given to the President of the United States by the Queen of England in 1855 - please see the comemorative plaque that is located at the back of the desk and you can get a history of the piece. You can blow the picture up and read the interesting inscription. The original desk was made from reclaimed wood from the sunken Royal Navy boat HMS Resolute - hence the desk is also referred to as a Resolute desk.

The desk is beautiful - you can see how intricate the hand carved details are including the large eagle with the shield, snake, leaves and arrows to the back panel in the knee hole. The back panel opens out. Then there are the host of other intricate designs weaved into the desk, including rosettes, leaves, flowers, scrolls, swags and other emblems.

This is a true partners desk as both sides feature an open out cubby hole with lock and various drawers. The table top is large and covered in tooled leather with gilded circumference. This would make a great piece for your office, home or otherwise, and is a great conversation piece as well as of course looking totally the part.
