Desks were better in the 1700s

From Berlin’s National Museum of Arts and Crafts (Kunstgewerbemuseum), a desk and cabinet created by the furniture makers Abraham and David Roentgen and owned by King Frederick William II of Prussia (1744-1797). It’s full of hidden compartments and extras. I would have loved this as a kid, and I’d like to have one now, for that matter.
