Office furniture that we take for granted today only started to appear post 1900 - the filing cabinet being a good example. It is rare to see a filing cabinet dating from the 1800's - even the cabinets from the early 1900's tended to have thin horizontal shelves for holding papers - not the modern hanging systems we are more familiar with today.
Desks and bookcases of course have been part of the "office" scene for some time. A Victorian office work place would have had a number of types of desk depending on the seniority of the worker - e.g. small Davenport Type Clerks Desks, Dickens Type Clerks Desks, Bankers Desks, Pedestal Desks, Partners Desks etc
At Antiquedesks.net we recognise that we can't source a Georgian, Regency or Victorian filiing cabinet to match one of our period desks. We therefore commission a well known firm of British craftsmen to make modern style filing systems to match our genuine antique desks and writing tables in terms of wood, colour and even handle type and style - perhaps this is the best of both worlds!
