Tangents


American Late Victorian Mahogany Bombe Desk
Fourth quarter 19th century, the front with a kneehole flanked by a bank of drawers to each side and raised on turned legs, h. 29-1/2", w. 48", d. 30".

Found this wonderful desk in the current sale catalogue at St. Charles Gallery and could not stop thinking about how much it reminded me of the Pushmi-pullyu from Doctor Dolittle (1967). Talk about distant voices.
