We are pleased to be offering today this bench made carved mahogany slant top desk that was made in Bucks County, Pennsylvania back in the 1880s. It is definitely a bench made piece. It is a wonderful size being 27 inches wide, 19 inches deep and 39 inches high. It has a hand carved shell carved slant top writing lid that is breadboard lids. The lid is supported by two pull out supports. It has a four drawer hand cut dove tail case with detail ball and claw feet and a wonderful bottom skirt with a wreath carving in the center. When you open the lid, it exposes a four drawer carved door simplistic cubby hole interior that shows the normal nicks and dings. These are quite desirable and are becoming more challenging to find. This desk came right out of a home and it hasn’t been cleaned, polished or waxed. It has a crack on the side, but it could use a nice polish. It is high end quality. It has wonderful cast brass Chippendale hardware. It comes with no key, but it does have the lock. Shipping starts at $295 for a driveway delivery in our normal area which is New England. Please contact us prior to purchase with your zip code to confirm what it would cost you if outside of New England for shipping.
