Resolute Presidential Mahogany Dollhouse Miniature Desk
The Resolute desk is a large, nineteenth-century partners' desk often chosen by presidents of the United States for use in the White House as the Oval Office desk. It was a gift from Queen Victoria to President Rutherford B. Hayes in 1880 and was built from the timbers of the British arctic exploration ship Resolute. Franklin Roosevelt had a small door built for the gap to prevent people from seeing his wheelchair. Many presidents since Hayes have used the desk at various locations in the White House, but it was Jackie Kennedy who first brought the desk into the Oval Office in 1961 for President John F. Kennedy.
This desk is finished in a painted satin and has working drawers and doors. It is part of the Platinum Collection by Town Square Miniatures and is 1/12 scale, which is the most common scale for dollhouses and dollhouse miniatures. It means that if an object is 12 inches in real life, it is sized down to a one inch as a miniature.
