There is more to this exceptional Davenport desk than meets the eye. Crafted of luxurious mahogany, this Regency-period desk is compact yet offers ample storage space. The leather-upholstered slanted writing surface slides out and lifts to reveal space for keeping one’s documents. In addition, a fabric and wood-lined storage compartment is accessed by pulling the beaded trim on the front of the desk, while two side pulls contain additional flat writing surfaces. Beautifully tapered legs set upon brass castors complete this compact, yet functional design.

Originating in the 1790s, Davenports were first made by the renowned cabinetmakers Gillows of Lancaster and London at the request of a Captain Davenport. They were produced in all stylistic varieties of the period, but Regency versions such as this one are some of the most sought after by collectors.
