Chippendale desk

A reverse-serpentined Chippendale desk made of the finest mahogany--with oversized ball and claw feet, perfectly-carved scallop shell center drop, oversized original brasses, blocked and shell-carved interior with three fans, carved flame-topped document drawers, and rare mirrored prospect door. 'As descended' condition, with original surface and great presence. North Shore, MA, probably Salem, c.1775. A rare combination of form, condition, and surface, and the finest of its type that I have owned in over 40 years. 41 3/4" width, 44" ht. There is an obvious crack in the lid at one hinge.
