My grandmother had this piece before she built her house--notice the the light fixture just fits in the top curve of the secretary and not an inch to spare! I've always love this piece and I believe its oak.

    Very nice curved glass, drop front, oak secretary. Are you enjoying the piece in your house now?
  2. James James, 5 years ago
    Is it a Larkin? It is beautiful.....I love old Oak pieces the color the grain. It has the original mirror still very nice. Most of these I see with new mirrors.

    Thank you, officialfuel. I was wondering how to title the piece. And, no..I'm enjoying these wonderful things through the pictures I've been posting on this website; they're the way they should be in my grandmother's home. They belonged there--they were complete there. They are in storage now. In time, I will find new ways of using them. I guess you could say I morn the loss of the house.

    Thank you, James. How do I find out if it's a Larkin? How did you know from a web picture that it still had it's original mirror?
  5. James James, 5 years ago
    I could see the deep bevel around the outside edge. Most people would be happy just to have a flat new mirror in there if the old one was gone. A new mirror with a bevel like that would cost a big buck.
    There should be a Larkin paper label on the back if it is Larkin. It looks like it was a grand old house. It is sad you have that secretary in storage :-(

    Here is a start. There are some other sites that are at the end of the 2nd page.

    Thank you, James. I will check the sites out. So nice of you to help. (I try to spend time in the storage every week--going through things--but I'll find myself just staring instead. My grandmother's wasn't big-- just a Craftsman bungalow--but there was a hundred years of living in it.)

    When I was a little girl back east a friend we knew had one similar that I admired. Your piece is beautiful!! [Even as a child I loved such pieces of fine furniture.]
