Goddard Slant-Front Desk 
mahogany, 42"h, 43"w, 25"d  currently available with antiqued brasses

Most Newport cabinetmakers made desks, but this example 
replicates exactly a very rare signed Goddard original in a private collection. The case has four full-width drawers and the fall front opens to reveal a fully-blocked Newport interior. There are 21 drawers in total, each fully hand dovetailed in the exact manner of the original. The case is also fully dovetailed with half-blind dovetails visible on the top. The brasses are hand cast to replicate those of the original.

The relatively plain exterior of this desk makes it ideal to be made in a figured wood. It is shown here and below in figured mahogany and figured maple.
