It will be along time, if ever, if this piece ever comes up for sale again Measures 6-3/8" in height, not including rail across top x 3-1/4" wide x 1-7/8 in depth. RARE Artisan Dorothy Midgett English Desk with Blue Design Hand Painted VTG. I want to share one paragraph from this magazine. It reads as follows: Most painted furniture is found in the North, so most of Midgett's ideas come from research rather that actual viewing. I'm always checking in books and magazines and sticking pieces of paper in the pages where I find furniture. When I see a piece that has possibilities, I may stare at it for days, weeks, or months, and try to find as many photos of similar period pieces as I can. I steal portion of a design here and there, If there isn't anything usable for the piece I want to paint, I create a design that gives the illusion of the period All Midgett's furniture is adapted this way. Her only original reprodution of a design is on her blue English desk.
