Beautiful Satinwood & Mahogany Carlton House Desk This attractive Carlton House desk is a joy to behold, featuring very accomplished hand painted decoration which elevates it from being just furniture to something much more special. As you can see from the photographs supplied, this beautiful Carlton House desk has been made from the very finest satinwood. It also features rosewood crossbanding and the superb decoration comprises hand painted leaves, floral scrolls, emblems and urns. Satinwood, as the name would imply, is a hard and very durable wood that, when it has been polished, takes on a satin-like sheen. It was very popular for cabinet making and marquetry as was also widely used for making musical instruments. Rosewood has a lovely warm reddish brown colour and it also has a very distinctive grain with dark brown and black outlining. It is notoriously difficult to work with as it is very hard and it is infamous for blunting the craftsmen’s tools. Rosewood veneer, especially Rosewoods from the Brazilian species is highly prized and was the wood of choice for the famous box makers David and Thomas Edwards. A Carlton House desk type originates from within the bureau a gradin form. Originally designed in the 1790’s for the Prince of Wales who was later to become George IV by George Heppelwhite, it is named after Carlton House, the residence of the Prince of Wales at the time. This type of desk is also sometimes known as a Carlton House writing table. The desk is similar to a ‘normal’ desk, but the drawers form a ‘U’ shape around the desk user, instead of being flat in front as is more usual in a bureau a gradin. The other essential difference from the bureau a gradin is the Carlton House desk does not have pigeon holes. The desk top has a range of small cupboards, drawers and other storage compartments. There are an additional three larger drawers at the front of the desk providing ample storage for writing materials, stationery and papers. Wonderfully crafted and very ornate, this desk is sure to be the talking point of any interior.
