This satinwood desk belonged to Mary Elizabeth Garrett and was likely brought from her Baltimore, Maryland, home when she moved into the Deanery in 1904. The desk has an open front with cabinet ends, a rounded back, and a brass gallery rail top, and it is elaborately inlaid with various colored woods.

In archival photographs, the desk as well as several Queen Anne-style side chairs – all likely dating to the 18th century – can be seen in Garrett’s bedroom on the second floor of the Deanery.
