18TH CENTURY QUEEN ANNE PERIOD TIGER MAPLE DESK
Bay Colony Antiques is honored to offer you this ultra choice and select 18th century solid tiger maple Queen Anne period desk. We place several dozen of these within fine furniture collections each year and have done so for over 40 years now. This is as fine a specimen as we have ever seen in our collective careers. Uniquely different from Federal & Chippendale tiger maple desks this Queen Anne predating desk is defined by excellent condition, no restorations, original brasses, a nicely hand dovetailed joined case complimented by dovetailed transitions. Its construction is from the most select cuts of bold grained tiger maple with graduated thumb nail molded drawer facings, a well defined interior with flanked by loafer lid supports, standing on attached frame and bracket feet. We simply do don't buy these with any lid rips out or the typical abuse issues of a period tiger maple desk that has been roughly treated and bounced around the weekly auction circuit or sold in a Western Massachusetts field. We simply pay more to get better for America's most astute collectors. This is our business model. Many try to copy it but do such without the true financial commitment of owning the best stock anywhere in America.
