SOLD! 1950s/Early 60s Era Student Desk


We just got in this wonderful old (1950s/early 60s era) student desk from a gentleman who had it throughout his childhood until about an hour ago when I took it away.

It’s clearly been well-loved – despite the attempt to spiff it up with some additional paint – but is in excellent structural shape.  It’s pretty lightweight; I’m not very tall or particularly strong (since age & arthritis are doing a number on me) but I can easily carry it.

The desk has two small cubbies on top (the little boxes in each corner) and a single long drawer, as well as space below for books or other storage.

Condition:  Structurally, it’s in very good shape.  It does need to be refinished, as you can see.  Or you can just love it the way it is.

Dimensions:  30″H x 33″W x 18″D.

Price:  $40.00.   (Plus the obligatory 5.5% State of Maine Sales Tax, of course.)

Layaway Plan:  Please see our “Details: Layaway Plan” page.

Payment Information:   Please see our “Details: Payment & Pricing” page.

Shipping & Delivery Information:  Please see our “Details: Shipping & Delivery” page.

In memory of my beloved husband John K Snyder… 20 Sept 1956 – 21 Oct 2016.
He loved our shops, especially Heritage Books, Maps & Ephemera – it was his baby.

He loved me, and oh how I loved him.
