John Townsend Six-Shell Secretaire
mahogany, 101"h, 45"w, 24"d

This example was designed in conjunction with Michael Moses in the manner of John Townsend.  Since none of the nine extant examples of Newport block-front secretaires are by Townsend, this design draws on his documented works to create a piece with accurate Townsend proportions, carving, and construction details.  It features an open pediment, triple finials on fluted plinths, fluted quarter columns on the upper case, and John Townsend Newport shells throughout.
