Learn about Partner's Desk

A double-sided desk at which two people can sit facing each other. Usually containing drawers on either side and generally leather-topped. Sometimes described as a library desk or library table. They may take the form either of pedestal desks or conventional four-legged tables. Many such desks have survived in red cedar from Australian colonial days, for the most part preserved in banking chambers, court houses, police stations and public service offices. Such colonial government furniture dating from the later part of the 19th century is often stamped with a crown, the 'V.R.' monogram, and sometimes a date.
