Wow, how cool is this. What a great simple, functional desk for two. Of course, you have to have a partner you can stand being face to face with all day!

I would be curious if anyone knows more about this desk. Would you consider it Arts and Crafts, or Mission Style? Any idea who designed it? It's obviously very simple, with clean lines. Love the stripes in the oak, and the slot for holding paper. For some reason this Circa 1910 period is one of my favorites, especially when it comes to furniture.

    We used to have a lot of these in the Engineering Dept on the Navy Base in Newport RI. Draftsman used them all day on a high chair with back or sometimes standing up and having a conference around drawings .This is before computers made them obsolete....sigh wish i could get them now . Knowing the Government .....they most likely trashed them ...sigh !

    I remember seeing some of these partners desks in banks many years ago and have always loved them. Since there were so many made, they are probably classified as Mission. The simple lines, the oak, etc..... beautiful piece of work and a keeper.

    Love it! You can submit a photo to ragoarts.com and they will give you a free appraisal. They deal in a lot of furniture from the Arts & Crafts Movement.
    Hope this helps!

    Can't tell much about the sizee but this does not look like a desk as such, no where to put things and no drawers...I lean towards it being a station from the bank in the days of hand written checks and deposit slips and such that would explain the condition and the rack at the top or it might have been a post office. I'd be vey curios to know how tall it is.
