Antique black painted furniture looks almost modern or contemporary when mixed with other styles of furniture and art. This antique black painted spinet desk is highly functional and also pretty to look at. Use as a desk or a console/hall table.
A spinet desk is an antique desk with an exterior shape similar to a writing table, But slightly higher and is fitted with a single drawer under the whole length of the flat top surface. The spinet desk is so named because when closed it resembles a spinet, a musical instrument of the harpsichord family.
This desk was purchased from the original owner prior to coming to Reposed NY. The woman had attended a Baltimore college a long time ago and her college sticker is still on the top of the desk.
When closed up, the desk could be a console table or hall table. This desk has a top that folds back to reveal drawers, hidden compartments that slide open, and open cubbies. The writing portion pulls out to extend to a larger surface. Lap top? Computer desk?
Dovetailed drawers - one large exterior drawer and one small interior drawer. Black paint as well as desk surface (darker wine red) has patina and some wear. The accent color on the turned legs is a reddish orange. We love the painted floral scroll on the front. Original brass finish hardware. Desk top height 29" Desk surface width 27" Exterior case width 37" Back height 34" when fully opened.
