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.

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.

Beautiful desk. The only down side I can find is that it was a bit smaller then I pictured in my head. But it totally makes up for it in how it uses that space and the amazing craftsmenship. The best desk I've ever owned. I can't wait to pass it on to my children when they are old enough to admire and care for it the way I have.

Rated 5 out of 5 by KathB Beautiful piece of furniture!
This is a really nice piece of furniture. I have gotten many compliments on it. It's a little smaller inside than I thought it would be. I wanted to be able to put my laptop inside when not in use, but it doesn't fit. I think it looks bigger in the photos than it actually is... this is really a compact desk - but that's ok. I really love it. Good solid quality, well made, lots of drawers and space, nice features, looks good... Who could ask for anything more?
