This is an old desk from my fathers factory is Saint Therese Quebec. I have no idea how old it is, maybe someone can tell by the dove tail on the drawer.
The top had a leather blotter that I was able to remove by putting wet rags on it to dissolve the wallpaper glue that likely was used to attach it. The leather had a nice gold design around the edges. I need to find a place to have the leather replaced, hopefully someone has a suggestion, preferably someone in Canada, and in my area.
There was also strips of veneer as decoration that was in rough shape that I removed by laying very wet old facecloths on the veneer, I left it for a couple of hours and it lifted off easily with a putty knife.
I would love to hear if anyone has a suggestion for the top of the desk.
