Dating from the 1940s era, this is a dainty, diminutive burl walnut Queen Anne Chippendale slant top desk. This just came off a container for England, and it’s a gorgeous little desk. It has a slant top picture frame burl walnut writing surface that is supported by two bars. When the drop down lid is open, it exposes a simplistic writing surface with a plain interior, including cubbyholes and a drawer. There’s a red leather insert on the writing surface, and the writing surface is 27 inches high from the floor. The size of the lid is only 19 inches wide, and it is 20 inches deep from the cubbyhole to the edge of the writing surface. There’s a slight ink spot and some wear marks on the inside right corner that can be seen in the pictures. There is a lock with a key, but we never guarantee antique locks to work, because they always need to be adjusted and oiled. When the lid is closed, the face of the desk is all burl walnut, with fancy hand carved walnut on the cabriole leg base. The drawers are both dovetail, and the top drawer is actually a simulated double drawer, with two individual picture frame divided drawers with their original Chippendale hardware intact. The bottom drawer is a single large drawer with its original Chippendale hardware, picture frame molding, and dovetail. The desk itself has a burl walnut top, lid, and drawers. The base is solid walnut, with excessive carving across the front, and it stands on tall cabriole legs. The overall size is, at the widest point, only 22 inches wide. The top is 21 inches wide. At the center of the desk, it is 16 inches deep, and the overall height is 39 inches. You can see where there is an indentation on the very top, on the right hand side, where something must have hit it at some point in its life. There is also the typical surface crazing that always appears on the burl walnut because it is so dry when it is applied. Structurally this desk is all good, tight and sturdy, only showing normal wear marks on the edges of the desk, down by the legs, and across the writing surface.
