I agree, Cheryl, but coming from a Brit it sounds like sour grapes. I don't imagine the National Trust wanted to part with the funds it would have cost to get it back over the Atlantic.

It looks like it belongs in her writing studio, not in the Dukedom.

The desk is absolutely gorgeous (but the text that superimposed on the bookshelves is definitely visually distracting). 
Thanks so much Leslie!

Hi all, Duke U acquired VW's writing desk (I believe designed by Vanessa) and here is a scan of the one page piece with picture, entitled "Crazy Smart" (which is a term duke uses for their students, but seems a poor choice here one might say)
savoring the summer, leslie
