With our highest compliments and utmost honors, Bay Colony Antiques proudly presents for sale this exceptional early 19th century antique Tiger Maple butlers desk. The uppermost drawer that houses the desk has a beautiful Walnut face with a Tiger Maple border around the edge. The interior has 6 Tiger Maple drawers with two concealed vertical letter drawers and a Mahogany valence door that works on a pivoting mechanism. When the center door is opened there’s an interior Poplar box with a Birds Eye Maple drawer at the bottom and the entire box can be pulled out to reveal a hidden compartment in the back of the box. The bottom 3 drawers have bold grain Tiger Maple faces and the vertical stiles have the grain orientated perpendicular to the faces. Many of these started their lives with wood knobs and were upgraded to more decorative options as they became available in the mid 20th century. This desk has nice embossed brass pulls with thistle designs. The bottom left pull is a little loose and sags a tiny bit but it’s hardly noticeable and still in good condition capable of everyday use. The desk measures 41 1/4" wide x 21 1/2" deep x 47 1/4" tall. The writing surface measures 35" wide between the supports x 18 3/4" deep with a surface height of 34 1/4".
