The Captain's Davenport Desk is rated 3.5 out of 5 by 13.
Rated 3 out of 5 by from POOR QUALITY CONTROL! After receiving the desk, I unwrapped a ton of cardboard,plastic and tape. So far, so good. All the eight outside drawers worked good. Fortunately, the key was in the top drawer that lifts up by hand. Attempted to open the top desk drawer and every thing went down hill from there. The key would not fit properly inside the key hole. Turning it left or right did nothing to it. I consulted with a USA rep for D.T. and she said I may have received a defective lock. Rather than send the desk back, I suggested to her that I will keep the desk and have a professional locksmith repair it. She agreed to that and would give me some funds to compensate the locksmith. My further review: Before shipping any thing from 'Indonesia', that a Q.C. inspector makes sure 'no one ships any thing with the desk or related item locked'; because of all the wrappings as noted above.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from 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 from Way too small... This piece is way too small for any practical use. It is beautiful and well-made, but just not practical.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful 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.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Nice Product 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 from 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.
