Chippendale tiger maple slant-front desk. The desk sports four graduated drawers on a Chippendale bracket base, strong tiger maple striping, and a very attractive fitted interior, including a fan-carved prospect door. The desk is a nice small size. There are few condition issues: Stains on the top, a repair to the lid where the hinges had broken out and shrinkage splits to the sides. Nevertheless, this desk will make a strong presence wherever it is placed. 18th century, New England.
Dimensions: 37½” wide x 41” high x 20” deep.
