The Black Captain's Desk measures 67"L x 29.5"W x 30.75"H. Captain's made good use of notoriously cramped quarters in the ship's stern section(deckhands were housed before the mast). The captain's desk was tailor made to offer maximum comfort and space in a minimal floor area. Drawers to house the crew's 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 ship's movements. Well-traveled. Sturdily made of cherry and maple. Leather inset top. This captain's desk is also available in ivory(AU-MF013).
