Description
Swedish Neoclassical Satin Birch Slant-Lid Desk with Integral Clock

mid-19th century, the enameled clock face marked and set in a case on a later slant-lid desk crafted to accommodate the clock weights, the lid opening to reveal an interior fitted with drawers and niches, over a bank of three graduated drawers, raised on bracket feet, the face indistinctly marked with a maker's name and "Lowshult".
h. 85", w. 47", d. 19-3/4"
Condition
**In very good, clean condition. No evidence of major damage or repairs. Some old surface stains to the desk
top and interior from use. Three of the small interior drawers have chipped losses to their knobs. Overall very
 solid and sturdy. The clock door front is figured veneer, as is the framing surrounding the drawers on the
 front of the case. The sides of the case and drawer fronts appear to be solid. The clock face has considerable
 flaking and losses to the paint. We are uncertain as to its running condition; however, the movement appears 
clean and intact. Pendulum, two weights and winding key present.
