Desk and Bookcase
John Davey American
John Davey Jr.
John Davey inscribed his name seven times on the drawers of this desk and bookcase; the signature of his son John Davey Jr., who at the time was undoubtedly still serving his apprenticeship, appears twice. Another pencil inscription reads “C. J. Ewing / Media,” for Charles J. Ewing, who owned the piece in the mid-nineteenth century.
