ANTIQUE WRITING DESK WITH BRASS TRIM +
Age. More than 100 years old
Composition. See below
Size. 36.” High, 27” wide, 18” deep
Comments. Made of hardwood this desk has lots of cast brass embellishments throughout which includes a fence as well as decorative items on the legs. Under the drop front there is a 3 ½ inch deep compartment with a sliding top, felt covered writing surface and a full width galley with cubbies as well as 1 ¾” deep drawers. It even has brass inlaid stripes as well as design in the front, fancy cut bowed out side pieces and double arched legs. What appears to be the original finish has wear, shade variations, scratches/scrapes and has darkened over the decades. This desk is in sturdy shape with normal use wear, has some wood wear, small, shallow wood dents, some small chips/splits in the veneer and soiling/stains. There are some wood repairs on the drop front in the interior, as seen in our photo and we are unsure if the hinges as well as the chains holding the drop front are original. It is also missing a few of the thin brass inlaid strips. Need some work but when done you’ll have a very fancy desk for your home.

To save our bidders time, our system is desgined to accept "maximum bids."
A "maximum bid" is the highest bid you are willing to place on an item.
Our system will automatically bid for you, in the required increments, up to your "maximum bid."
The initial bid placed for you will be only as high as required to outbid any current bidders should your "maximum bid" be highest.
This means that you will always pay the minimum price required to "win" an item, and not necessarily your "maximum bid"
**NOTE: In the event that your maximum bid ties a previously left maximum bid, the previously left maximum bid will prevail.
**If you are the current High Bidder, entering another "Maximum Bid" will simply adjust your current "Maximum Bid" to the new amount providing it is higher than the "Current Bid". You are allowed to increase or decrease your "Maximum Bid"
