Captains made good use of notoriously cramped quarters in the ships stern section (deckhands were housed before the mast). The captains desk was tailor made to offer maximum comfort and space in a minimal floor area. Drawers to house the crews papers, sealed sailing instructions, logbooks, charts, instruments and a pair of flintlock pistols. Brass corners to protect from damage when being moved around. Sturdy construction to withstand often violent ships movements. Well-traveled. Sturdily made of cherry and maple. Leather inset top.
The Black Navigators Desk with Leather Top and French Finish number MF022 by Authentic Models is a part of the Desk and Office Collection and measures 55.3L x 27.6W x 30.7H inches and weights 111 lbs. and is packaged in 2 vendor boxes, upc. Travelers and seafarers of yore had to be resourceful in order to survive. Desks on board ships had to be cleared and stowed at a moments notice. Things had to be multi-functional. In the case of our desk, the two supports could act as steps into the navigators bunk, or to mount a camel, whichever came first. The desktop, complete with drawers and brass bound, could act to stop musket bullets when under fire. Leather top, hand rubbed French finish, somewhat beat-up; proof of its many voyages and colorful history.
