R.J. Horner Partner’s Desk with Winged Maidens

Published by under RJ Horner

Up for auction is yet another R.J. Horner labeled Partner’s Desk. Bidding is already active on this piece – taking it up to $2,025 (expect that to double/triple). The winged maidens really make this piece and it appears that they may have their original casters as well. Bidding will end on April 1st and more can be seen at the listing.

Carved all over this magnificent partners desk has two drawers on each side with hand carved pulls and a “secret” drawer on each side with the characteristic Horner North Wind Face instead of drawer pulls. The North Wind Face can also be found in the center of both ends of the desk in the middle of fantastic relief carvings of fruits, nuts and flowers.

The desktop has a gadrooned carved edge and is supported by Fantastic Winged Ladies. All four have beautiful faces and are magnificently carved.

This rare model partners desk by R. J. Horner is in Mint Condition, and is embellished with fantastic drawer linings, the most detailed and intricate relief carvings and the finish is Black finished Mahogany. The many fine details on this desk are characteristic of Horner’s finest work.
