I have this beautiful secretary desk I love . It has no makers name on it and I am unsure of age . 1800's ? The top comes down to make a writing table and it has many cubby holes and drawers inside . Now for Amber and those who have watched my hairdo's here is getting ready to go out and my Mom in disbelief laughing wondering how it will turn out :-) All my wood critters are shown also in photo.

    found any secret "hidy-holes" in the desk?
  3. scottvez scottvez, 3 years ago
    Nice desk.

    I think it is first half of 20th century. Some additional photos may help-- drawer interior, desk interior, back, etc...

    I do like the hairdo!

    Beautiful secretary, the bevelled mirror is nice, it would allow you to check your hair before getting down to work.
  8. Manikin Manikin, 3 years ago
    Yes walksoft it would do that but also could check hair after sitting there paying bills :-) I think that is what happened to me
    Thanks for love Walk

    Rainy and 60 here. Been that way for a week. i got soaked yesterday as I gave my daughter my umbrella. I proceeded to spend most of the day in the rain, talk about hair, and she didn't use it once as it stopped raining when she got on the bus.
