#49 Accountants Sweet – Shaker Works West by Ken Byers

#49 Accountants Sweet


No, I didn’t spell it wrong! This lovely 3 piece suite is really sweet. The 3 pieces form a great room centerpiece. Although called a highly refined Accountant’s or Bookkeepers desk, it could also be a personal secretary, circa 1850 and onward. Dovetailed joinery sets off the solid structure and the finely tapered legs give it a sense of elegance. The hinged top and drawer open to reveal secrets of the times and owner but when closed it is simply a lovely piece of furniture. Inside 14 cubbyholes offer space for letters and bills or whatever. You can delight filling them up. The desk is featured with my engineers podium and classic tall stool. Each piece available separately, of course.

$600 for both pieces
