The diminutive proportions, graceful design and elegant woods of this ladies desk place it among the supreme examples of the form and indicate it was made by one of New York’s premier cabinetmakers. It is illustrated in the Girl Scout Loan Exhibition as “a rare avis in the net of the collector of American furniture, and when the name Phyfe can be authoritatively associated with it even a collector may well be satisfied. This lady’s desk has the true Phyfe turnings and the inlays and borders of rosewood are in his manner.
