This is one of those wonderful antique desks with pigeonholes, little drawers and interesting spaces… It closes to a completely flat top, or opens to show all of its considerable features. It’s easier to have you check out the photos than to try to describe everything, but the basics are: 3 little drawers and a full drawer, 2 pigeonholes, 2 small “wells” (one on each side), and a writing tray that pulls out! (Oh, and apparently the legs do twist off for easier transport.)
I’m posting this for a friend who no longer has room for it. I first took these photos quite some time ago, but somehow never got around to posting them. As you can see, she was in the process of renovating part of her house, and Romeo (the white kitty) was checking things out. Romeo died a while back but his happy-friendly cat personality lives on in the photos.
Condition: This desk is in great, solid condition. It does have a number of stains and blemishes, as well as an area on one side where the wood was damaged, but those are purely cosmetic. This is an amazing desk, in the exact condition it was when my friend purchased it.
Dimensions: The desk is 19 1/2″ deep by 35 1/2″ wide. Closed, it’s 31 1/2″ high.
Fully opened up, it’s 36 1/2″ high (to the book rest at the back). The 3 small drawers are 4 1/2″ wide each, and the writing tray extends 6 1/2″ beyond the footprint of the desk. The large drawer is 25″ wide by about 1 1/8″ high by 15″ deep.
FIRM Price: $150.00. Because this is privately owned (not part of a business), there is no sales tax.
Unless we’re having a sale, which would be listed here, our prices are firm.
