Four full width drawers on one side and dummies on the reverse. Mounted on cabriole legs with carved acanthus leaves and one half pedestal desk style support turned sideways, all on bun feet. Height with closed letter compartment 36.25 inches, open 41.5 inches. There is an older vertical split in the front and back panel, otherwise the desk in good solid condition. Some minor surface scratches and scuffs from usage. A Davenport desk, (sometimes originally known as a Devonport desk) is a small desk with an inclined lifting desktop attached with hinges to the back of the body. Lifting the desktop accesses a large compartment with storage space for paper and other writing implements, and smaller spaces in the forms of small drawers and pigeonholes. The Davenport has drawers on one of its sides, which are sometimes concealed by a panel. This stack of side drawers holds up the back of the desk and most of its weight.
