Slant-Front Desk

After 38 years I  know how to make a new piece of walnut match the color of 200 year old wood. Bail pulls and escutcheons are from Ball and Ball. The finish is brushed shellac. The finish  was rubbed out and waxed.

I believe this desk is from Pennsylvania, 1790-1810, because of the secondary woods that were used.  The desk is 44 1/4″H, 39 3/4″ W, 22″ D. The price is $2,800.00.
