Antique Desks and Writing Tables

The first known type of antique desk was the antique bureau, which first made an appearance in France (approx. 1650).

Since that period, there have been many styles of antique desks and antique writing tables, including the antique pedestal (or kneehole) desk, antique cylinder desk, antique partners desk, Victorian, Edwardian, and Georgian desks, Carlton House desk, the Edwards and Roberts mahogany writing table and the ladies writing table. There is even the dickens writing desk – so called because it is believed that Dickens used such a writing desk to complete his work.

As with most antique pieces of furniture, there are many periods to choose from such as

  • Georgian (1700-1800)
  • Regency + William IV (1810-1840)
  • Victorian (1830-1900)
  • Edwardian (1901-1910)
  • Revival (1900s)
  • Art Deco (1920-1940)
