Marketplace writing desk - wrong picture?

Author Post
dagngayt I was looking through the marketplace, and noticed that the picture for the writing desk is a piecrust table. So either the name or the picture is wrong!

I was informed of the following:

It is a replica of Jane Austen's actual writing desk.

dagngayt I am going to nitpick again... It may be a replica of the table that Jane Austen wrote at, but her writing desk was a box that opened out to give a writing slope, and had storage for papers, pens, etc. It would have stood on the table. See here: http://www.jasna.org/persuasions/printed/number30/welland.pdf

A replica of the desk would be a splendid thing to have in the marketplace! (Hint, hint...)
