Old family secretary desk
I've looked and have never seen another secretary like this one. It has a written history with it; when my family bought a small town doctor's farmhouse in 1812, this was the doctor's desk and came with the house. My great-great grandfather (also a doctor) used it, and it was passed down through the family (along with a piece of paper documenting the passings). It was given to my grandparents on their wedding day, then to my parents on their wedding day. Two years ago they celebrated their 50th anniversary, and gave the desk to me. It's a treasure, and I hope it stays in the family for another 200+ years!
Can you identify the style or anything about the desk? I'd appreciate any information you might share!
