PROMINENT BREAST DRAWER
BALL AND CLAW FEET
Brasses formed to curvature
Distinctive carved shell pendant at the bottom of the base rail is partially missing.
Shaped knee brackets and the bold, sharply defined ball and claw feet are glued and reinforced with glueblocks.
The legs are tenoned to the case.
The desk top is half-blind dovetailed to the sides.
