Lot Essay

Originally designed and exhibited at the Cabinetmaker’s Guild exhibition in 1937, the model was produced in very limited numbers. The early handful of examples executed featured a leather-covered writing surface, usually paired with a mahogany frame. Of the following limited production of desks without leather-covered tops, only two examples are believed to have been made in teak.
