    Vintage Desk Chair, was given to my grandson by his grandmother, who had picked it up at a yard sale or some place. They don't know the age or origin of the desk. The chair is in excellent condition. Engraved on the back of the seat are the numbers '13245'. Does anyone know what the numbers represent, or an estimated value for the chair?

      These were called a chair desk or desk chair. This one is newer. Old ones had an ink well hole and a pencil groove at the top front. Older also had a one piece desk top where this one appears to have a three or four piece top. These are still common and lots of them available which keeps the value down.
