The Churchill Desk

Some years ago we were very fortunate to be able to purchase from a London auction house, the actual desk used by Sir Winston Churchill in his private residence, in Hyde Park Gate, London. This fine Victorian mahogany pedestal desk, in the George III style, was in a superbly preserved original condition with early brass ring handles and with its original hide leather top.

The desk was flown to America to be exhibited in the foyer of a New York hotel being used by members of a convention of Churchill enthusiasts and then eventually sold in that city in an auction to a member of the Convention in 1996 together with the detailed research about its history and a letter of provenance from Sir Winston’s private secretary, Anthony Montague Brown, a framed photograph and a number of hand-written letters from the most distinguished politician in the Country.
