I am selling this really great piece of history...an Antique Early 1900s maybe even very late 1800s Desk that was built by a Dentist for his practice.  He made this desk for himself.  It was a desk and cabinet he used to store his dental tools in.  The way this was built, it could be used as a secretary desk or a writing desk.  It actually has several possible uses.  This is made of solid wood, but I am not sure what kind.  It is solid as a rock though.  It is 95%+ all original with the exception of a piece of 1960s paneling that was used on the interior of the desk sometime in the 60s to go over the original wood interior for more stability or to have a better inner surface.  This item measures 32" L x 26 1/2" Deep x 54" tall.  I have taken pictures of this piece from many different angles.  One picture shows what the interior of the desk looks like.  I also took a picture of the very bottom of this piece so you could see the wood that was used.  I got this from a gentleman who had it in their family for all of these years because it was his great grandfather that originally made it for his dentist office.  His great grandfather constructed this back in the very early 1900s (possibly very late 1800s).  His great grandfather passed it onto his grandfather and so on down the line.  I love this piece but I no longer have a space for it.  This is a real treasure.  It has been kept indoors in a smoke free home.  This item has been cared for very well.  There are no known defects.  Keep in mind that this was not built by a furniture company, so any imperfections in construction are just part of the item's character.  This piece is solid as a rock and very stable.  Please email me with any questions that you may have about this item before purchasing it.  FAST SHIPPING on all orders, and I do combine shipping so please check out all of my other listings.  Shipping for this item will be freight.  Those costs are detemined based on your location and freight company.  You are also welcome to pick this item up locally.  I am very easy to work with.  Shipping costs will vary, but could be as low as $60 and as high as $150.  Shipping costs depend on buyer's location, insurance, packing method and drop off and pick up locations.  I do NOT make money on shipping.  I charge actual shipping costs.  In some cases, I do construct my own crates, pallets or boxes.  In those cases, I will only charge you for the materials and NOT the labor.  We will discuss all of this on the front end though.  Shipping is to be mutually agreed upon between me and the buyer.  Thank you so much for looking at this item!!  :)  Due to the kind of item I am selling and its shipping, I do not accept returns.  I will try my best to make any situation right, but in this situation insurance can be obtained on the item in the case of damage.  BUT I can not accept returns so please ask me anything you need to know up front.  Thanks for understanding!!
