This desk-on-frame is based on a photograph that was in Norman Vandal's book "Queen Anne Furniture". I later found that the original casework was built by Eliphalet Chapin and is stored in the Yale University Art Gallery.
I also found another similar desk-on-frame at the Winterthur Gallery Digital Online Collections that resulted in me changing my design just prior to construction to include the ball-and-claw foot design.
The interior gallery for the desk is a combination of design ideas from Norman Vandal and Tony Kubalak.
The finish is cherry oil stain with hand rubbed satin urethane and a crystalline wax top coat.
The hardware is from Ball and Ball.
