Early 19th Century George III mahogany pedestal partners’ desk, leather inset top above outset corners and cluster columns, each plinth with three drawers and an opposing cupboard door, on plinth bases.
Provenance: Mourne Park House. The desk was exhibited in The Grosvenor House Art and Antiques Fair, an exhibition which was running annually from 1934 – 2009 up to the war and resumed in 1947, it was in this year that the partners desk was exhibited. The Fair had no less than thirty-eight Royal openings and a distinctive feature of the Fair for many years was the loan of treasures, not ordinarily on view, from the collections of Her Majesty The Queen, The Queen Mother and other members of the Royal Family. The only fair with Royal patronage this event would have consequences for a greater appreciation and access to antiques by a wider public in the years to come.
