OUTSTANDING CURLY MAPLE SLANT FRONT DESK, Original Surface
WESTPORT, MASSACHUSETTS, CIRCA 1790 - SOLD


Antique Curly Maple Slant Front Desk, Westport, Massachusetts, Circa 1790, angle view

This attractive southern Bristol County desk is constructed of dynamically figured curly maple throughout. The fitted interior features three-banks of vigorously grained sycamore faced drawers. Sycamore is commonly found in south coastal Massachusetts furniture and its use is a strong regional characteristic. The four graduated thumb-molded drawers are mounted with period brasses within the original borings, and pressed brass lock escutcheons. The case rests on beautiful ogee bracket feet stylistically inspired by nearby Rhode Island shop traditions. It should be noted that although the feet resemble those favored in Providence and Newport, they speak volumes; note the regions style and flair with their bold returns and platform base. The desk retains a rich old historic surface with a mellow patina that may be original. This desk remains in a very high state of originality; brasses are period replacements. We note that the brasses have been changed since the desk was photographed for book publication. We have the oval brasses as seen in book and will make them available if preferred by new owner.

The desk was acquired in the 1970’s from a home directly across the street from the Westport Fire Department and is illustrated in, “Harbor & Home; Furniture of Southeastern Massachusetts 1710-1850”, Page 209, plate 71.2. It was also exhibited in the show relating to the volume, at Winterthur, Spring 2009.
