19th Century Country French Desk ~ Farm Table with Sliding Drawers is a superlatively preserved example of rural artisanry designed for generations of daily use, yet with an unusual design feature.  Typical thick plank tops, leg timbers, and "H" stretchers, all rendered from solid elm wood, are joined with pegged mortise & tenons in the time-honored tradition.  The drawers, however, are accessed with sliding facades that are an intriguing variation, accessed with turned pulls.
Circa 1880s
