This is the last item that I need to add to my home and I found it on my dear, sweet Craigslist. I love the clawfeet and the serpentine drawers. I believe it's a Chippendale design. I did buy another writing desk a month ago, but hubby took that over and I have just the space for this under a painting in the dining room.
Any clutter will be hidden under the drop-down shelf - the beauty of form and function. The seller is looking for the key, which I hope he finds because I want to add a little tassel to it and keep it in the keyhole.
