John Townsend Kneehole Desk
mahogany, 34"h, 36"w, 20"d

The Newport block-front kneehole with the rare feature of a concealed writing desk. The three-shell panel pulls forward and then folds down to reveal a blocked interior with five drawers and five compartments.  The detailed shells and scrolled ogee feet are signature details of John Townsend.
