Dealers note: This is without doubt, among the best quality desk I've ever had the pleasure of owning. The craftsmanship is absolutely top flight. Miles & Edwards were renowned makers based in Oxford street and won commissions from some very important clientele. Amongst them: was the Turkish Ambassador, who was introduced to them by Lord Palmerston, the British Ambassador in Paris and the Emperor of Russia. They supplied many of Britains stately homes including Audley End, Essex: Burton Cobstable, Yorkshire; Hampton Court, Leominster; Hopetoun House, Lothian; Panshanger, Hertfordshire; Stafford Hoyse, London; Wynyard Park, Co.Durham and Broughton Hall, Yorkshire, to name but a few.
