Victorian walnut Davenport with side door
This Victorian walnut Davenport has the feature of a door to the side with its 4 drawers behind it. This was always a sign of higher quality construction, and also was more expensive to make, when it was first made circa 1860-70.
The usual sloping top with a leather inset writing surface with the gilt tooling. The lid lifts to reveal the satin birch storage area with 2 interior drawers and a pair of dummy drawers.
Above the writing surface is a stationery box with a lifting lid that opens to reveal compartments and inkwell.
To each side of the knee hole are very elegant solid walnut cabriole legs with scrolls at the top.
This Davenport desk is very attractive, and would be perfect in so many places around your home.
