Provenance: William Blair Ltd., Bethesda, Maryland; Estate of Edward "Ted" L'Engle Baker and Ann McDonald Baker, Jacksonville, Florida.

Estimate $2,000-4,000

**In very good condition. There is a small veneer chip to the top front left corner of the banded top. Scattered pieced-in veneer repairs from previous professional restoration. The drawer interiors are clean and the drawers slide well. There is no indication of having previous hardware. It has been refinished at one time and retains a pleasing finish and color.
The top and base appear to be original to each other.
It does not appear that the legs have been replaced; however, it is hard to know for sure since the piece has been refinished at one time.
The wood matches and there is some shrinkage to the grain.

Sold for $4,750
