Vintage Herman Miller George Nelson Action Office Roll Top Desk: 
Circa 1960, early version of iconic design classic found in MOMA collection.

Very rare: This is an early desk height version with three drawers, painted black wood sides, and white laminate top.  Hard to find this combination, PLEASE RESEARCH AND CHK AROUND.  

Made of walnut wood, aluminum, laminate, and plastic.  

Condition: The walnut wood is in excellent condition with no chips; perfect patina.  The plastic drawers are all in perfect working order.  The laminate top is clean, but has a small dab of dried clear epoxy on the surface and small cuts in the edging of the writing top.  There are some scratches on the aluminum legs.  The electrical outlet cord is missing its plug, but this is an easy fix by a skilled electrician.  The black painted wood sides are chipped in places and show wear.  This could be repainted to be perfect, but in my opinion, it is just fine without it.  Repainting it could make it look worse if not done by a SKILLED craftsman, and sometimes they are hard to find. 

This desk is fairly priced below market value given its condition with cost to make repairs to paint.  With or without repairs, the desk is selling below fair market value for this design classic asset, which has only appreciated in value over time regardless of condition. 

Shipping:  The desk is under 200 lbs, and can only be picked up in person or shipped by a professional packing service or freight company similar to Plycon or the like.

Note: Due to increased volume, allow at least two weeks from payment for delivery.



The items I sell are vintage, and commonly have the type of wear that you would associate with a vintage piece that has seen typical use over the years, including, but not limited to, light scratching, scuffing, minor edge bruising, some finish wear.  I will call out any major condition issues, but these conditions should be presumed, unless otherwise noted.  I encourage you to email any questions or concerns prior to bidding.
