Up for bids is an old Chautauqua Industrial Art desk by Lewis E. Meyers & company. I founnd quite a bit of research on these as I had no knowledge at all when I happened upon this:) I just , once again was drawn to its ~yesteryear~ look! The site belows gives some very nice history on the company & the desk! First off, this is old and has issues! Please do bid if you expect new or perfection as this is not it!

This appears to have been used by a student a bit as the Hy-San Slate( chalk board -like) show quite a bit of the green worn off. This is the base part where they practiced what was on the scroll. There are various things on the scroll that rolls by the wood knobs on the side. Writing, Music, Art, Animals , telegraphic codes, Shorthand,Business Forms ,Trains,~ I mean you name it and it is probably some where on this scroll. I went through quite a bit of it and found some tearing , some taped but all in all mostly preserved well!

I really do not know the age of this. The US flag depicted in color along with others has 48 stars so I know it is at LEAST 52 years old:) probably more...On the Pennsylvania train ist says copyright 1913 on the shorthand 1903 etc. There are varios sgments to the scroll with the names and copyright date.

On the opposite side is an American Resources Map ( very worn ) made by Lewis Meyers as well. This was nailed on and is yellowed and brittle with some missing on the bottom and sides.

Even with all the issues this displays so cool & is really a conversation piece to say the very least!!

It measures approx 26 x 16 1/2 "

I really welcome any questions that you may have!

This will look just awesome sitting on a desk in a corner!!! It folds downa nd can also be mounted on the wall. Take the time to read the history ~ A great read!

Happy bidding & God Bless!

Sold 'as is' due to age !!
