A small scaled mid-19th century grain-painted pine cottage desk in two parts: The upper section with hinged writing slope lid that opens to a simple interior with four open cubbies. A single full length drawer is fitted below. The lower section with three full length and graduating drawers retaining their original wooden knobs. Hand-cut dovetail drawer construction. Plain bracket feet.
The original overall hand grain-painted finish is slightly worn in areas but this adds to the antique character - mars, wear and losses, see photos. Waxed and buffed, only an occasional wipe with a soft dry cloth is needed to maintain its warm luster. The bracket feet have been re-supported with the addition of back supports for additional strength. Original hardware survives but the metal keep to the lid lock is missing.
