Secretary Desk Mahogany Governor Winthrop Drop Front & Claw Feet & Hide a Slots
Kovels dates this desk style, which is also called a slant-top, drop front, fall front or secretary desk, back to the 18th century, usually with American Queen Anne or Chippendale design. In the Colonial Revival period of the early 1900s, reproductions were also made by the Maddox Table Co. Of Jamestown, NY, according to Anne McCollom writing for creators. By the 1930s, the Winthrop desk was an official décor trend, made by furniture companies from coast to coast. Most of these pieces will have a makers stamp, label or tag on the side of the top drawer.
The desk comes in a variety of forms: with the straight block front or serpentine ox bow front on the drawers; with the cabinet or bookcase on top and without it; and with Queen Anne or Chippendale legs and escutcheons.
