Rated 4 out of 5 by JoeDingleberry123 16 drawers and two compartments. Great for storing small items.
Cool little desk! I knew it was going to be small when I placed my order - thats why I wanted it. perfect for the small room it is going in. it has 8 outside drawers and 8 small drawers under the lower lid. The top box is great for storing pens and small items. I will have to find a small stool or chair for this piece. Only one negative comment and it has nothing to do with the otherwise good quality of the desk. when it arrived the top box lid was broken at the hinge. I removed the hinge (totally useless low quality screws) and glued the broken wood. Resembled and now you'd never know it was broken. I love this desk and have had my eye on it for years. Finally pulled the trigger when Toscano had a 25% off sale. love it.

Rated 3 out of 5 by johntm Way too small...
This piece is way too small for any practical use.
It is beautiful and well-made, but just not practical.

Was smaller than most people had expected in the reviews but the piece is absolutely the best and most precious piece I have. A stool works great with it.

I really like the Captain's Davenport Desk. I only have two negatives against it.
I wish it would have been a little bit larger & I think it was a bit pricey, especially when you include the $102.00 shipping fee.

Rated 5 out of 5 by DAwriter exceptional!
I searched for the perfect writing desk for weeks and found an antique Davenport I fell in love with. Until I saw the price. They run anywhere from $1700 to, well, a lot! I gave up on the Idea until I found a few replicas on other sites priced at $649, which was very reasonable. After another search for this specific replica, i came across Design Toscano's site where it was priced at $499! $150 cheaper!!
The quality is amazing. All the detailing and drawers are perfect. The finish is beautiful. Really impressed with the craftsmanship. The only less - than - perfect rating I gave is maintenance, but that's only because of the mahogany finish requires frequent dusting/polishing. This piece offered in Walnut finish would be 100% perfection.
I am so incredibly pleased with this purchase and would recommend it to any writer or home designer.
Lastly, in my excitement during ordering I mistakenly put some incorrect data. I received an email to call Design Toscano to correct it and they were exceptionally pleasant and offered me great service.

Beautiful scroll wood design. Desk is smaller than I expected and it takes up very little room. Disappointed that the drawers are not big enough to hold legal size paper. I use the drawers to hold envelopes and writing pads. There are lots of drawers inside the desktop too which can be used for stamps, paper clips etc. A very unique desk that certainly is a conversation piece.
