    Hi, Thanks for looking. We just bought this old wood desk ($37.50 at estate sale !) and plan to take it to our cabin. The desk appears to be aviation related with propellers on the sides and a carved DC 3 American Airlines ( I think) plane in the middle (8 windows) and also on the top of the mirror (7 windows) . I cleaned it up and it looks great. It's 46" wide and 18"deep and came with a small bench.
    This website is great and I'm hoping someone will have a little info on maybe who made the desk, where it may have been used originally and if there are other furniture based American Airlines items out there.
    Thanks for the help.

      I don't know...I thought it might be a vanity but not sure. Thanks for the quick comments. I guess a desk would not have a mirror. I'll be danged if I'm gonna hide it in a cabin bedroom!

      Hi Ioema. I know your post on American airline mirror and desk is old, but im hoping you had more info on this item. I have the mirror only and would like to know more about it. I appreciate any information you can provide. Thanks!
