Importing a Single Symbol From a Different Font

I would like to use a single symbol from the fourier family in mathmode in one of my formulae in my document. In the comprehensive symbol archive,


on page 53, the \partial symbol in table 147 is what I am after. How can I manage this?

I can't remember where I got this from, but here's what I have in my custom .sty file:

\DeclareMathSymbol{\partialup}{\mathord}{fourier}{130} % Upright partial derivative symbol

I think that's the one you're looking for.

Minute differences, but the symbol \partial in table 147 is actually the italic non-variant version (kahen's solution is the roman \varpartial symbol):
