Once again, an indication of quality is a double cantilever leg, with two upright support columns at each side of the desk frame. Another thing to look for is a support beam under the desk. This is common on ‘I’ frame desks and bench desks and provides excellent strength for the work-top.
Many desk styles were produced in the 18th century. Small, portable "ladies’ desks" became popular in England. In France, where the habit of writing little notes became something of a social mania, the variety was remarkable. The cylinder top and rolltop were among the popular desks of the period; many featured ingenious mechanical devices. The cylinder top was a rigid, quarter-circle shutter covering the interior. The top could be slid back into the body of the desk while, at the same time, a writing surface might be drawn forward.
