Federal Eagle-Inlaid Slant-Lid Desk, Mid-Atlantic States

Federal Eagle-Inlaid Slant-Lid Desk, Mid-Atlantic States

The fall-front over a case having fluted quarter columns centering four thumbmolded graduated drawers on a molded base raised on French feet. It’s all about the interior… the prospect door flanked by document boxes features an inlaid eagle clutching leafy devices in talons and beak all within inlaid border. The door opens to reveal a pair of cubbies displaying a bird’s head and bump out-scrolled divider above stacked drawers; behind the dovetail joined case are four drawers. Flanking each side of the prospect section are four valanced and string-inlaid drawers above cubbies surmounting four drawers [each side].
