Late 18th Century writing tables were raised on slender square tapering legs or slender turned legs of simple outline. Both terminating in Castor’s. In the early 19th Century a heavier leg turned with rings became more popular, which became more robust as the Century progressed. An early 19th Century development was the writing table with end supports. Writing tables are also referred to as “bureau plat” when in the French Style such as Louis XVI style.
