A diminutive early Georgian kneehole desk, with one large and seven smaller drawers, and the prerequisite recessed kneehole cabinet. The walnut is attractively grained, marred and patinated. It is raised on a stepped arched bracket-footed base; with each pedestal front having complete symmetrical bracket feet. Given its proportions, today's best use may be bedside, sofa-side; as a young person's desk, or as a dressing table. The 'full-across' top drawer was altered to a fall-front extendable writing surface and subsequently restored to its original stationary drawer front condition.
