Tiger maple slant-front desk. The desk sports a dovetailed case construction and a slant-lid front that opens to an attractive interior with cubbies and drawers. Below are four graduated drawers fitted with period hardware on an applied bracket base. The desk is in very good condition with exceptionally strong tiger striping brought out by an old refinish. The hinges on the lid have been reset but the lid is original. There are a few drawer lip repairs, a small stain on the top and minor restoration to the base. 18th century, New England.
