Goddard Block-Front Desk
mahogany, 41h, 45"w, 25"d

A Newport block-front desk in the manner of John Goddard and his sons. Like the Townsend block-front desk it has concave and convex shells on the lid.  The interior follows the Newport style of he period and includes the sliding well panel for access to the top drawer. The scrolls on the ogee feet terminate the convex blocking and feature the foliate carving of the Rhode Island School of Design's Lisle secretaire.
