The 2 writing pull out surfaces/"tablets" that pull out... These were most likely not the originals? PLEASE NOTE: I have described this desk to the best of my ability, after having had it looked at by a few dealers and old time woodworkers/furniture restorers.
I did not have it officially appraised, just looked at, and unofficially appraised. NOTE: Desk is currently taken apart. Photos were taken before moving.
Altho both were refinished I believe.... And yes, I DO know that furniture sales arent what they used to be, etc, etc..More photos available upon request. More photos to be added ASAP.
