Please help identy desk
Hi every I'm new on this board. I was hoping if someone could help me identify this desk and give me some more information about it. Who made it? what year. It used to belong to a school that was closed down and this desk used to be in a library. I noticed one date state in one of the drawers with the year 1967, I'm not sure if thats the manufactured date or a stamp that a librarian used for books.. I spliced three seperate photos in one jpg file. the bottom right is how the desk orginally looked before i stripped the varnish and sanded it down. Forgo the take a photo with the drawers in it. the larger photo of the desk is how it looked like stripped of its varnished and sanded down. The drawers had wooden handles which one was broken so i decided to remove them all and change them to something different. YOu can see that it has very old locks that requires skeleton keys. If anyone has info oh what type of skeleton key i could use or where i could buy one. and I included the picture of the chair that came with it. If no one knows could you point me to a website of some kind or another forum where antique furnitiure fans... Thank in advance for any help you could offer. I would love to get my hands on some keys... I've already stained the desk to a mahogoney red. came out very nice..
