Antique American country New England Chippendale style slant front tiger maple desk, with bracket base and solid bat wing brass hardware, bench made during late 19th century. This desk was made by a master craftsman from early boards and solid tiger maple boards, to look exactly like an original period American Chippendale desk from 1775. Measures 36 inches wide by 41 inches high and 18 inches deep. There are four graduated bottom drawers and a full interior with three secret compartments. The drawer sides are hand dovetailed, made from solid American chestnut. Excellent condition with a deep rich old patina. This is tiger maple at its best, in a desk of rare size and desirable form.
