Classical Figured Maple and Cherry Fall Front Desk

Home/Furniture/Classical Figured Maple and Cherry Fall Front Desk



Classical Egyptian Revival figured maple and cherry fall front desk featuring carved Egyptian feet and an elaborate fitted interior with 15 hidden drawers. New York State, 1820-1845

Tell me more: The feet on this desk, also called “Lion’s Paw Feet”, are impressively proportioned, the carving throughout is unusual, the prospect door is charming, and there are enough drawers and hiding spaces to keep anyone happy.  The two false drawer fronts that form the fall fool just about everyone into thinking this is simply a beautiful chest.
