This desk is so adorable. Kidney shaped Federal style and small scale. Yet has ample storage, and even a file drawer, for a ladies writing desk, computer desk, homework desk, or even a makeup vanity. Or, it would be perfect in a guest room or entry hall. Comprised of three shallow drawers across the top, two narrow and one wide in the center above two banks of drawers. Each bank with the look of three equal sized drawers, when in reality the left side conceals one deep file drawer and one shallow drawer. Each drawer is adorned with an antique brass plated Shield Hepplewhite drawer pull. The warm walnut wood is gorgeous with all the patina that comes with use. Straight grain for the top and sides but a beautiful burl on drawer faces. No distinct makers mark has been located but on the bottom of all drawers but the center is stamped JWPC which, in a few internet posts, points toward the maker having been John Widdicomb. Made most likely in the 1940s-1950s. You need to make this beautiful little desk yours.
