Steve eventually, not liking paying the hefty commissions, opened his own gallery in Vermont. He would stop in our Antique Shop about once a month to tell us about his new adventures as an artist. Well, we now have the fabulous desk and now it can be yours. The desk is made up of the finest Zebra wood and curly maple including the use of solid curly maple in the secondary wood for the drawers.
The horizontal lines in the zebra wood are in the beautiful graining of the wood. This is the best built piece of furniture that we have ever seen for quality and we think you will agree. This is a drop lid desk over two bottom drawers of zebra wood, curly and burl maple. The upper case, which comes off, is Greek Parthenon design having 12 columns over two large supporting columns with dore gold capitols.
The open galleries are deep with a fantastic curved zebra wood back. If that's not enough, Steve added a double door secret compartment in the back the open to narrow shelving inside. They are quite hidden having a spring push closure, therefore not noticeable.
Steve's noted carving of the sun and sun rays and a double K are signature with his art. The double backward and forward K meaning it is alright to make a mistake.
Backward K meaning to strike out and forward K meaning that's okay. This is our interpretation of his meaning. This beautiful desk measures 77 inches high, 39 inches wide and 23 inches deep. It is signed by Steve on the top of the back just above the two secret doors, S.
