While non-period furniture is something we rarely, if ever, offer, this kneehole desk is an exception.  It is hand made and, quality-wise, is as fine as a period example.  Note the magnificent shell on the tombstone door.  The claw and ball feet are fully developed with beautiful shells.  The mahogany is quite heavy and the best.  It is unusual with the second row of top drawers that give it a height closer to a bureau.
