This mahogany kneehole desk is like many of those that were produced in its era. Generally, these are reasonably priced, although many have major elements that have been replaced over the years, e.g. bracket feet and especially the tops. This desk has its unquestionable period front bracket feet and top. It is pure, with the exception of replaced period brasses. The top is crossbanded, as is the door below.

Kneehole desk of this type have always been popular because of their small size and functionality as a piece of early 18th century furniture.
