Detailed Photographs

A Handsome Antique Federal Mahogany and Inlaid Desk and Bookcase, attributed to Mark Pitman, Salem, Massachusetts, circa 1810.

This handsome antique Federal secretary desk and bookcase, with a raised gallery and cross-hatched glazed cabinet, is a form associated with examples produced in Federal Salem, Massachusetts. In fact, a related example of the same dimensions and nearly identical layout bears the label of Salem cabinetmaker, Mark Pitman (born 1779). The desk is mounted with a gallery form crest comprised of two outer plinths framing an arched mahogany splat, centering a large central plinth, each which is mounted with turned urn form finials. The central plinth has a rosewood cross-banded border around a brilliantly figured flame birch frieze.
