Need help ID'ing an an old desk

thomasward00February 10, 2011

My wife was given an old desk after Katrina in Uptown NOLA...

It is labeled on the back "Matthews Meir, Inc. NO LA

I have come to a dead end online...

Below is a link to the photos of the desk, it is structurally rock solid.

Thanks in advance

It looks like a deco moderne desk, probably from the 1930s. The pulls don't look quite right to me. The veneer appears to be in really sorry shape: if you like it, you can fix it up, but it probably has very little value. It could be interesting to keep as a survivor of the hurricane.
