Sheraton Mahogany Davenport
A George III Sheraton period mahogany davenport; having a pull-out pen wrest above drawers to the right hand side which are strung in ebony; the leathered writing slope opens to reveal an interior veneered in bird's eye maple.
Birdseye Maple is not technically a distinct species of Maple, but rather, it’s a figure that’s occasionally found in Acer saccharum (Sugar Maple) trees. It’s named “birdseye” (sometimes simply written out as: Bird’s Eye Maple) because the figure resembles small bird’s eyes.
