Lift-top desk, pine, with one drawer below two false drawers – a rare form.
The desk has an attractive Chippendale bracket base, a slant lid with a raised molded edge and a till inside with a drawer beneath. The desk sports hand-forged hinges and is constructed with early rose-headed nails.
This desk has excellent proportions, and could possibly have been used in a country store. It is in very good condition, exhibiting only the wear expected from age and usage. The drawer pull is the only replacement. Circa 1790-1810, New England.
Dimensions: 51” long x 36” high x 19” deep.
