Boston block front desk

No. DH15670

Wonderful Boston block front desk with ball & claw feet and center drop.

The feet are unusually tall which gives the desk excellent visual lift.

The blocking is bold and crisp all made of deep rich mahogany.

As all Boston desks of this period (1770) the interior is divided into five vertical sections.   In this version the drawers are on the top of the cubbie-holes (while others are reversed).

The center prospect door has block and shell headed carving.
