An important Chippendale inlaid cherry desk and bookcase, Southern Worcester County, possibly Sutton Massachusetts, circa 1790.

This important cherry desk and bookcase features the exuberant use of pattern inlays that is associated with the Lombard school of furniture making from the Sutton, Massachusetts area. This wonderful example, with bold patera inlays and abundant inlaid flourishes, remains in amazing as found condition, with what appears to be the first surface. The raised bookcase top has a flared cornice molding above a pair of paneled doors. The doors are richly inlaid with paterae at each corner of the frame above bell flowers and bookend bottom corners. This molded frame centers a line inlaid panel with quarter fans at each corner framing a large oval paterae. The doors also have overall line inlaid decorations. Below the cabinet doors is a single candle slide that is constructed of a thick slab of pine with an inlay decorated cherry front. The doors open to a bookcase with a adjustable shelves over five portioned cubbies. The bookcase rests on a slant front desk that has a lid inlaid with a quarter fans and a large oval paterae. The lid opens to a fitted interior with four cubbies over two short and one long drawer flanking a central prospect section. This prospect section centers a pair of vertical document drawers with bookend inlay at each side of a removable fitted compartment that reveals four secret shelves. The desk is above four graduated long drawers with quarter fan inlay and brass hardware. The sides of the desk have fluted quarter columns with turned capitals and bases. The base of the desk has a molded edge above tall ogee bracket feet with shaped returns.
