A fine cherry Chippendale desk in original surface, with original hinges, and retaining most of its original brass handles. With fully-developed ogee feet and a carefully designed interior, this desk was made by a master craftsman. Note the blind-dovetailed case, thinness of stock, and extremely fine dovetailing of all drawers. In exceptional condition throughout, with a fine dry patina. Probably South Shore, MA. c.1800. 38 1/4" case width, 32" writing height. Peter H Eaton Antiques
