The London firm Maple & Co. which was based in Tottenham Court Road, but also had a branch in the Rue Bourdeau in Paris were proud to publish their clientele, besides most members of the British Royal family, included 'H.I.M. The Czar of Russia, H.I.M. The Empress of Germany, H.I.M. The Empress Eugenie', also 'The Royal Family of the Netherlands', and even 'H.M. The King of Siam’. This desk is identical to a Cartlon House Desk supplied by Maple & Co to De Haar Castle which was a Dutch castle owned by one of the Rothschilds which was rebuilt and furnished by them in the late 19th Century. This desk was listed in the Maple & Co sale (supply to De Harm Castle) catalogue as an ‘Exceptionally Fine Satinwood Inlaid "Carlton" Writing Table', which is listed as 1007 B in the 'Drawing-room furniture' section of the sale catalogue and cost 30 Pounds. Sold at Christies Amsterdam 13th October 1998 it realized a amazing £71,498. The Carlton House Desk is thought to have been named so after being a design in the late 18th Century by either George Hepplewhite or John Kerr for the Prince of Wales (who later became George IV) for his London Residence, Carlton House. The desk resembles a normal writing table, but small drawers above the surface form a "U" shape around the user, instead of merely facing the user as in a typical bureau à gradin. Unlike other types of bureau à gradin, the Carlton House desk usually offers no pigeonholes. There are usually small slopes over each of the desktop drawers at the left and right ends of the "U" shape. Drawings of this type of desk were presented by Hepplewhite in his noted design book, The Cabinet Maker and Upholsterers Guide and Thomas Sheraton his own book of designs, The Cabinet Maker and Upholsterer's Drawing Book, thus ensuring its popularity.
