Presidents Desk Plaque

The American Presidents desk – or resolute desk comes with an inscribed brass commemorative plaque. The Resolute was the name of the ship. The plaque reads:

‘RESOLUTE – part of the expedition sent in search of Sir John Franklin in 1852, was abandoned in latitude 75 on May 15, 1854. She was discovered and extricated in September 1855 in latitude 67 by  Captain Buddington of the United States whaler ‘George Henry’.

The ship was purchased fitted out and sent to England as a gift to Her Majesty Queen Victoria by the President and People of the United States as a token of goodwill and friendship. The desk was originally made from her timbers when she was broken up and is presented by the Queen of Great Britain and given to the President of the United States of America as a memorial and a courtesy of the loving kindness which dicated the offer of the gift of the RESOLUTE.’
