This style of charming desk was called a "ship captain's," popular on board because of its compact and efficient design, and also named after its British inventor, a Col. Davenport. Hand made in England of matched burl with inlaid satinwood banding, this antique furniture dates from about 1870.
The restored finish is in excellent condition, preserving just enough stains, mars and shrinkage separations from age for a little antique character, see photos. Drawers have solid mahogany sides with hand cut dovetail joints and original knobs. There are false drawers on the opposite side for balance.
Under the tooled leather lid is a storage compartment. At the back is lift lid covering compartments for stationery, pens and inkwells.
Size is 22" wide, 21" deep and 32 1/2" tall, legroom is 23" underneath.
