I have a desk that I don't know anything about besides that it looks really old. It seems to be mahogany and it has spindle legs. On the bottom left it has the picture of the First Lady Martha and on the bottom right it has the picture of George Washington. I cannot find the same desk online to compare. If someone can help me identify the desk I would appreciate your help. If anyone knows how old it is and if it maybe belonged to George Washington himself?

    i think it must be very, very old, because they stopped making them to hang upside-down at least 150 years ago.
