An Oak Pedestal Desk
After a design by Thomas Chippendale

Of freestanding serpentine form, rising from a plinth base, the pedestals each house four ‘S shaped’ front drawers with canted corners and carved fluted pilasters, a central drawer on top, all fitted with silver plated handles; the obverse with two shelved cupboards; the writing surface is fitted with a green leather.
Circa 1860

Thomas Chippendale was the first cabinet-maker to publish a book of his designs, titled The Gentleman and Cabinet Maker’s Director. Three editions were published, the first in 1754, reissued in 1755, and again in 1762 with new designs. Designs included library tables and dressing tables with serpentine form, canted corners and bowed handles, similar to this pedestal desk.
