A terrific curly maple antique slant front desk, Westport, Southern Bristol County, Massachusetts, circa 1790.

This attractive antique Chippendale slant front desk has dynamically figured curly maple throughout and wonderful regional characteristics. Antique slant front desks such as this are desirable in tiger maple and this example exhibits some of the finest tiger maple wood we have seen. The interior has three banks of drawers, each drawer has vigorously grained sycamore fronts. Sycamore is commonly found in South coastal Massachusetts furniture and lends regional characteristics to this desk. The case rests on ogee bracket feet that borrow much of their form from nearby Rhode Island. Although the feet do resemble those found on pieces from Providence and Newport, they retain regional flair in their bold returns and platform base. The slant front desk retains a rich old surface with a mellow patina that enhances the contrasting grain within the tiger maple. The desk was acquired in the 1970’s from a home directly across the street from the Westport Fire Department. This antique desk is illustrated in, “Harbor & Home; Furniture of Southeastern Massachusetts 1710-1850”. Page 209, plate 71.2. It was also exhibited in the show relating to the volume, at Winterthur, Spring 2009.
