    Description

    The Civil War Field Desk of Confederate Maj. Gen. Thomas Rosser. This was originally purchased at the estate sale in Virginia some 30 years ago that contained many pieces of Rosser's Civil War and earlier memorabilia. A number of these pieces have been offered in previous Heritage auctions and the desk is accompanied by authentication documents. Constructed entirely of walnut, the desk is 21" X 20½" X 19" high when closed and 42" wide when opened. An unusually large and extremely well made example, befitting a general grade officer. When opened the desk displays two drawers and numerous shelves and file compartments. Very fine untouched condition. Rosser was one of the Confederacy's most able cavalry commanders and led the famed "Laurel Brigade." Great Civil War field desk with good provenance/ ID to an important Confederate general.
