condition: good
make / manufacturer: unknown
size / dimensions: 48X21X30.5" high
NEWLY REFINISHED. Top and side panels are made from 3/4" solid mahogany. Drawer fronts are made from 1.5" solid Mahogany. Feet are made from 1" solid mahogany and backed up. The drawer handles are solid brass. All fits together very well. Solid construction. Note that the desk is sitting on a dolly in one view. The desk is sitting upon a lifting device in another view--in front of a garage door. This means that the desk may easily be loaded onto your vehicle. If you think the desk is right for you, I suggest you buy-it-now, because I like the desk a lot and if it does not sell soon, I may put it to use and take it off the market.

48" wide, 21" depth, 30.5" high top. Kneehole is 24.5" high and 20.5" wide. Center drawer is 19+" wide and 14" front to back inside dimensions. Side drawers are 9" wide and 16" front to back inside dimensions. The desk is designed to be placed against the wall. The desk back side is unfinished. Dovetail drawer joints. Desk was made in the 1st half of the last century. There is a date of 1942 in the upper left drawer cavity. There is the remnant of a Mohogany Manufacturers Association sticker in the inside of the center drawer.

Concerning the price: Stripping the old finish off, prepping and refinishing is no easy task. I figure I put several thousands of dollars of time into the job. All things considered, the desk is a bargain in my opinion.

I prefer to communicate via email. I do not text.
