Look at what I found on the Online Galleries website!
This desk is typical of early nineteenth century furniture for its sharp architectural lines. The walnut is very finely figured and represents the only ornament beyond the austere brass work. This is very much a trait of Empire furniture design.
The candlestick slides are an unusual attribute and can be used today for both candle lighting or for the placement of electric lamps.
