A magnificent, exact replica of the Resolute Desk in the Oval Office in Washington DC. This is one of the finest pieces of replica furniture Mahogany by Hand has ever produced. It is a stunning partner desk that is suitable for…well, a President!
This partner desk was originally commissioned by Queen Victoria as a gift to the USA. It was presented to President Rutherford Hayes in 1880 as a thanks for returning the HMS Resolute lost in ice in Nova Scotia. The ship was eventually scuttled and this desk was made from the mahogany interior of the ship. There were actually two desks made at the time, not identical, but both from the same ships timber. The other desk resides in Buckingham Palace.
The whole story is engraved on a brass plaque inset into the front of every Resolute Desk we make.
This stunning Resolute Desk replica it totally handmade and hand carved from solid Honduras mahogany just as the original. An antique partners desk Melbourne made specially for you!
