Description

A Regency rosewood davenport by Miles and Edwards, possibly made by Gillows and retailed by Miles and Edwards. Leather top with a brass gallery and pen draw.
The davenport desk is a small writing desk with a slanted lift top and drawers on the side, not on the front.
The Victorian form was often made in small sizes to be used in a lady's bedroom.
The many drawers were of varied sizes to hold stationery, stamps, pens and other items used at a desk.
A davenport may have elaborate veneer and carved decorations
Offered due to retirement. previously advertised at 3,900
Origin: This desk owes its name to a captain Davenport who was the first to commission this particular design, from Gillows of London, near the end of the 18th century. In a sense then it could also be considered a Campaign desk though there are no records indicating if the captain was in the British Army or the Royal Navy.
Internal Ref: 3103
