Winston's desk

Two English designers created this Arts & Crafts desk for Winston Churchill's weekend house, Chartwell, in 1922. It's all pretty straightforward, except for that odd center drawer. Could that be where Winston kept his cigars? His secret stash of brandy?
Enjoy.

That's an interesting piece. Nicely modeled, too.

Thank you, sir. I had to guess about the interior drawer supports. The design of that center drawer complicated matters.
Best,
