Walnut Slant Front Desk circa 1780-1800, Burled Interior

This two hundred year old desk is simple, and slightly austere outside. Clean lines, no fuss. Then...inside it's a surprise of burled wood drawers, little compartments, and behind the door -- more tiny drawers. Beautiful and handmade, yet not formal. Gorgeous place to stash chargers, extra credit cards, passports, pens, and other things. Or a perfect space to hold a collection, or keep materials for your special interest (fly-tying? scrapbooking? a secret collection of Magic the Gathering?). The lower drawers are wide enough to hold children's artwork, gift wrap, blueprints, nautical charts....all sorts of larger items.

Very good antique condition. Some old repairs, and replaced brasses. But sturdy, sound, and ready for another hundred years. The finish is old though not original, a warm, soft satin that feels informal and easy to live with. Earlier owners surely used this as a desk , but we regard it today as a marvelous place to store both special small items, and wide flat things. Leave the drop front open to display the pretty interior, or close it up to keep day-to-day paper piles out of view.
