We are pleased to be offering today this wonderful high quality custom mahogany Chippendale style ball and claw slant top governor Winthrop desk made by the Maddox furniture company out of Jamestown, NY. They were well known for their high quality desks, blanket chests and breakfront furniture. This particular desk is a high quality with a solid Mahogany slant lid that has breadboard ends on the writing lids, dove tail drawers on all four serpentine drawers and it is all mahogany even the sides. The Maddox label is inside the drawers. This desk was purchased out of a home in Waterville, Maine. The home was built in 1951 and this desk was purchased at that time by the previous owners. We have this desk and some other quality pieces from this particular estate. The nice thing about a governor Winthrop desk is that it holds many things as it has multiple drawers. The breadboard end solid mahogany writing lid opens and the slides automatically pull out for support. When the lid is opened, it exposes a multi-cubby hole interior with a carved doors and two hidden drawers behind turn finial posts. The desk is in the original dark reddish brown stain finish that shows some surface wear marks on the writing lid, interior and exterior. We could redo the writing lid for the buyer if they so desire, so please contact us for a quote. The desk is in really nice condition overall. It even has the genuine mahogany blue label on the inside, which is only given to the furniture that is better quality. The overall size is 36 inches wide, 21 inches deep and 42 inches high. It is a great desk. Shipping starts at $325 for a driveway delivery in our normal area. Please contact us prior to purchase to confirm that you are in our normal area.
