THE MOST FAMOUS DESK


IN THE WORLD.


In 1880, England’s Queen Victoria - in a gesture of friendship (to the greatest democracy in the world) – gave U.S. President Rutherford B. Hayes a special gift. A desk. Designed and built by William Evenden at the Royal Navy Dockyard in Chatham, England. Made of solid mahogany to the most exacting specifications. With ornate carving and detailing. It was the desk of desks.


Since that time, 23 American Presidents have sat behind The Resolute Desk. Teddy Roosevelt created America’s national parks during his term in the Oval Office. John F. Kennedy signed his landmark Civil Rights Bill seated at this desk. And Ronald Reagan signed numerous bills into law while seated behind the Resolute Desk...after he had it raised by two inches to accommodate his height and give him more knee room


Named after the ship whose timber was used in its making, The Resolute Desk has been a first-hand witness to over 130 years of U.S. history.


And now, you can make history of your own...with your own impeccable reproduction of this extraordinary, legendary desk.


This is the very same reproduction desk now on display at the Ronald Reagan Presidential Library in Simi Valley, California and the Richard Nixon Presidential Library in Yorba Linda, California. It is made of solid plantation-grown Honduras Mahogany and is the exact same size (72” X 48” X 32” high) as the Resolute Desk that now sits in the Oval Office.


Our Resolute Desk is as true to the original as possible...right down to the separate 2” plinth that President Reagan ordered to give him extra knee room.


This kind of superior “museum quality” and uncommon attention to detail is what makes our reproduction Resolute Desk a truly remarkable piece of furniture and a once-in-a-lifetime investment.


We are proud to have helped many discerning individuals, collectors, corporations, movie production companies and government offices.
