Orvis typically only grabs attention for fly rods and really spectacular embroidered cords. A bit surprising is this Captain’s desk they’ve got on offer. Quite nice, and the description really hits the mark. Channeling their inner J. Peterman —

Were you to board an 18th-century frigate of the East India Company, you would have seen a Captain’s campaign desk similar to this one. Because quarters were snug, the desk needed to provide maximum functionality in a small amount of space. This handsome antique-style replica is detailed with a leather writing surface on the polished desktop, brass corners to protect from damage, deep drawers that might have housed log books, charts, and the requisite flintlock pistols.
