This is an unusual and beautiful Carved Oak Partner's Desk that could also be used as a Library Table. It has ball and claw feet atop the 4 cabriole style legs, and gorgeous scrolling on both sides. The piece is made of quarter sawn oak, and the top has only 2 wide boards. The drawers are functional on one side while the other side has faux drawers. There is a cut out on each side for a chair, so 2 people can sit at this desk simultaneously. The design is unusual, but the detail suggests that it dates from the late 19th century.
