It is rare enough to find pieces such as this with their original label in place and rarer still to find them also with a first surface.  This worktable/sewing cabinet is a tour de force with a mirror under a marquetry lid with pull-out writing surface, all of burl walnut and solid maple.  Under the desk is a pull drawer and below that a pull-out circular sewing storage area.

This casepiece, in addition to retaining its original surface and label, also has the name branded under one of the drawers. This is a museum quality piece, and we show it because of the degree of the development in its execution.

Height: 28 3/4 in. Width: 27 in. Depth: 17 in.
