Here is a stunning antique Davenport style captains desk. This felt-topped writing desk features a sloped top, which opens to reveal a large storage cabinet and a worn antique mirror. This particular Davenport desk also features a large storage cabinet on the bottom, not typical of desks of this style. It also has decorative carvings and details throughout. There is a secret metal lined compartment - likely for liquor storage, toward the back of the desk. The drawers open and close smoothly. There is some minor staining on the felt desk top.

Condition Note: All furniture sold by Memory Hole Vintage is in good, used, vintage condition. This means that there will be signs of wear from decades of use including but not limited to scratching, scuffing, paint chipping, and other imperfections. Every effort will be made to represent and describe all obvious condition issues in the photographs, but some minor imperfections may not show up. Furniture has been superficially cleaned, but may have varying degrees of dust and dirt build up, which the buyer may wish to clean.  If you have concerns about condition, it is recommended that you view the piece in person before placing an order.
