What a cool Arts & Crafts oak desk! The quality and attention to detail is superb. The quarter sawn oak slant front has the carved initials B.A.N. The old English style lettering was accomplished by carving away the background or field leaving the raised initials. What a Feat! Check out the hardware! The desk lid has handmade decorative straps on the front with a ring pull and working lock. The fall front drops and becomes the writing surface. Inside are 11 various size3d cubbies. Notice the heavy duty brass hinges and lid support. The exposed mortise and tenon construction, visible on the sides is so cool! There is a single drawer having the same brass pulls. Below is a single shelf. This is not a wimpy piece of Arts and Crafts furniture. Its construction, design and weight are impressive. The finish appears original and is in excellent condition having a warm color and very desirable patina.
