Slant Top Desk


The earliest American desks evolved from simple boxes that were used to store important papers and the family Bible.  As colonists settled into permanent homes, their furnishings became more substantial.  The combination of a desk with a chest of drawers, the slant top desk, was born at the beginning of the 18th century, during the William and Mary period.  It was the first practical desk form and became the prototype for later desks.
