English Country Style Writing Desk or End Table, circa 1700s

About

English petite writing table with fine barley twist legs that has been French polished over a 45 day period to within an inch of its life. One you place your hand on the top surface, you will understand immediately what I am trying to convey. One might say; smooth as silk, or in the trade we commonly refer to this as “candy.” There is nothing that will give you the depth and clarity as an old fashion French polish. We debated whether or not to remove the old blue paper in the drawer, but finally decided it looked right.
