We are pleased to be announcing that one of our lifelong friends has joined forces with us and we have opened up a west coast warehouse in Le Grande, California. Our friend is really busy doing house calls and finding many great items. Due to our volume, our freight will still remain reasonable, even coming from California to Maine will be a fair price in freight. Keep watch of our site as we will be adding new items every week and we are pleased to be announcing the item below today. If you have any questions regarding shipping, condition or anything else, please call John at 207-314-9621.
We are pleased to be offering today this wonderful civil war era burl walnut slant top secretary bookcase desk that dates from the 1860s in very nice as found condition. I am assuming it was refinished a long time ago as the condition is pretty nice. It has burl posts, burl trim pieces coming down the sides, applied bracket foot baseboard, raised panel burl walnut desk lid and art shaped carved doors. You can see where it was used for years as there are ink stains. We can only imagine what was hand written with a quill pen back in the 1860s from this desk. It is 35 inches wide, 72 inches tall and 22.5 inches deep on the base. We are going to add more pictures, so please check back if you are interested. It is in nice condition for the age. One of the pieces of molding under the bookcase top is bad and it will be replaced prior to shipping. Other than the ink stains, nicks and dings and a slight water spot on the top from plant it is in nice condition. Shipping starts at $285 for a driveway delivery in our normal area. Please check with us prior to purchase to confirm that you are within our normal area.
