Antique Desk - Solid Oak - 2-sided - slant top:
$707

This solid oak, 2-sided deskwith double slant top may have been custom-built for a bank lobby.Possibly one of a kind. It is a stand-up desk but is also easily used with high stools. If used by two people, there is plenty of room for both to have computers and papers with space left over. The smooth oak finish is waxed, not varnished (as far as I know). I have worked at this desk for 25 years, and all I have done is wipe it down with Liquid Gold occasionally.


Don't be misled by the $200 minimum. We paid $1,200 for this desk in 1980 -- $3,300 in today's dollars.


Please see the picture of the top which shows sixlittlepeg holes--two at each end and two in the middle. I'm guessing there was a cubby-hole structure pegged to the top which held blank checks, deposit forms, etc. The holes are not unsightly and could easily be pegged or filled. In the center is a 5/8-inch hole allowing a lamp cord or telephone wire to drop down under the top to be plugged in.


Desk is 44 inches high at the highest. The top is 72x58 inches. There are six identical drawers; three on each side:width-21, depth-26, height-5.5 inches. Dovetail construction. Being antique, there are no drawer slides but they glide in and out flawlessly, even when heavily loaded. No drawer handles--just reach under the drawer and pull it out.


The huge storage cabinet has 5-inch diameter columns at the corners with deeply carved acanthus leaf capitals. The elegant feet have seven toes. Cabinet dimensions are: length-48, depth-24, height-27 inches. 18 cubic feet of storage! There is one shelf in the middle. The doors on either side open to the same pass-throughstoragearea. Brass hinges and door latches.


For easy moving, the top lifts off the base cabinet allowing both pieces to pass through a normal doorway. It is a heavy desk; maybe 200 pounds.


No manufacturer's mark. Solid construction: no veneer; nothing loose.


About shipping: You arrange pick up or I can deliver within 200 miles if you pay gas. If it to be shipped cross-country, we'll have to figure that out.


If you are buying site unseen, a refund could be accetable, if buyer pays return shipping.
