English Chippendale Slant Front Desk

   

English Chippendale slant front desk. Are you trying to keep a small scale for furniture in your study or kitchen? This is the rare desk in a very small size, can do that and yet, open for a writing surface or hold your laptop computer. Made of walnut from heavy timber, this slant lid desk opens to reveal a pigeon-hole interior for small items including compartments for stamps and inks. Below, bracket feet in the Chippendale style support this tidy case. More charm is in the use of Chippendale “bat-wing” brasses at the sides as lifts.
