This solid walnut chest is called a butler’s desk. These were originally designed to be used standing. The top drawer pulls out to reveal a desk interior. There are 2 buttons located inside which allows the drawer front to drop down and become the writing surface. The surface has a replaced green felt. Inside are 6 small hand dovetailed drawers with bird’s eye maple fronts. Notice the shaped arches above the various sized cubbies which are used for sorting and storage. The drawer has period appropriate brass pulls and its original working lock. The remaining hand dovetailed drawers vary in depth and all, amazingly, have their original brass pulls. One drawer is missing its lock plus 2 of the four key escutcheons. The desk has reeded molding on the front corners and along its base. Notice the boldly turned legs. There is a lovely band of flaming walnut just above the top drawer and along its side. The finish is in excellent condition having a rich, warm color and desirable patina. 45"h X 41.5"w X 21.75"d, Condition: Excellent, Circa: 1830-1840
