Description This commanding desk of mellowed cherry is a fine example of Federal era cabinetmaking in the Ohio River Valley. Cherry and cherry veneers were a favored wood in the region as was the use of light and dark wood inlays. The eagle holding the liberty cap and the other ambitious shop-made inlay patterns on this desk, such as the flower pot on the prospect door reveal the sophistication of both the cabinetmaker and client. This desk and bookcase also exhibits typical vine and leaf inlay from the region.
