Although the superb cherry slant top desk was probably made in America, it grew up in Ontario along side the settlers that brought the circa 1800 desk to the province. See plate 1319 in Pain's book for similar one.

The Ontario made cherry and bird's eye maple over pine D-end table according to Shackleton in 'The Furniture of Old Ontario' when referring to plates 454 and 460 as probably coming from the same shop described the tables as representing superior quality among Ontario provincial furniture. This table, circa 1820, probably came from that same shop.
The Mennonites of Waterloo County have a long history of making very creative and functional furniture for their homes. They made this circa 1850 2 drawer cherry and maple peg top table, see Pain's book plate 858 for similar one, the top being secured to the base by removable pegs allowing easier cleaning.

This is the quality of antique furniture that will be for sale on this website for the collector to enjoy and possibly give to their children as we have done with these three, or to acquire simply as solid investments. The best quality antiques are among the best investments.
