Customer Question

I have a 1790 circa Chippendale Phila. secretary with a signature on a pigeon-hole drawer (William A. ) the last name Bel/Bet/Bit/ Bil) or something. Mahogany wood, Quarter Columns, bracket feet. Was purchased from the Butterfield family in Dunstable Mass. Any ideas on the signature or where else can I research?

Hello,

In order for me to properly assess what you have I will need to see images and clear, in-focus close-ups of the signature.

If you had already attached images to your initial posting, they are not showing for me here on my end.

Please send the photos at your convenience. There is not an extra charge to provide more pictures here.
