Queen Anne desk on frame

A rare and fine, possibly unique, Queen Anne desk on frame.  Made of cherry throughout, in old red paint, this desk was bought privately in a house in Exeter, NH, but is most likely from eastern CT, c.1740-60.  A fine country interior, a heart cut in the center of the skirt, and with turned legs ending in shoe feet- the front facing out, the rear facing in--and made that way!  There is a repair to the lid where it meets the frame, and one rear foot has been partially rebuilt.
