Family piece of furniture. Just wondering what it is and value?
I have other pieces that we were given from the elders in the family and I will post another one I am curious about. Thanks in advance!

    This is a Davenport Desk (Captain's Desk). Turn of the Century in the Eastlake Style.
    Appears to be in good condition.
    Hard to say value these days but I would say 500.00+.
    Hope this helps, regards, Larry

    I would call it Davenport parlor desk, 1870's, walnut.
