    This historic Oval Office desk is a replica of the one created from the timbers of the British H.M.S. Resolute, given to U.S. President Rutherford Hayes in 1880 by Queen Victoria and used by most American heads of State since. A presidential 6-feet in width, this Resolute desk replica is a mahogany masterwork features hand-carving that includes a nothing-short-of-amazing American eagle on little John-John Kennedy's opening panel and an enviable, tooled antique brown leather top with gold tooling. This extraordinary Victorian-style piece of furniture boasts letter and file drawers hidden behind doors with metal pulls along with three shallow drawers up top to hold your mighty presidential pen. Sure to be the signature piece in home or office, this stunning work is almost unparalleled among pieces that carry a rich American history.

    Our mahogany Oval Office Presidents' H.M.S. Resolute Desk is constructed with an engineered plywood shelf and divider for supreme stability and strength.

    Engraved plaque reads: H.M.S. "Resolute" forming part of the expedition sent in search of Sir John Franklin in 1852 was abandoned in latitude 74' 41' N. Longitude 101' 22' W on 15th May 1854. She was discovered and extricated in September 1855 in latitude 67' N. by Captain Buddington of the United States whaler "George Henry." The ship was purchased fitted out and sent to England as a gift to Her Majesty Queen Victoria by the President and people of the United States as a token of goodwill & friendship. This table was made from her timbers when she was broken up and is presented by the Queen of Great Britain & Ireland to the President of the United States as a memorial of the courtesy and loving kindness which dictated the offer of the gift of the "Resolute."

    Simple assembly required.

    A beautifully constructed piece of furniture

    This desk is the best, even better than the picture or description depict it. This was definitely not a waste of money and further more I would say this is worth much, much more than Design Toscano posts it as. This is the best deal ever.

    I really hardly write review because I'm too lazy, however I felt that this was an important one. I wanted this desk for over 1 year for our new home office. We do live down the street from where Teddy Roosevelt lived and died, so the history of the desk was influential in my opinion. We held off because of the price and my husband was not as keen on it as me from the pictures, but this price was lower and he finally agreed. You need a big room, as this desk is huge, but it is so gorgeous. The details are just incredible. My husband keeps commenting on how he loves it.
