Info on antique secretary/drop top desk

flamingmangoJuly 26, 2014

My husband and I inherited this desk from his grandmother, and we have no info on it. Thinking of selling it, as we just don;t have room for it, but were wondering how to advertise/what to ask for it. If you have any info, that would be great! Thanks.

Hard to tell from the photo, has it been refinished? The drawers look like they might have been.

Compare how the drawers are constructed. is the back made with wide boards?

Thanks! I have no idea if it's been refinished. I tend to think not, in considering the previous owner. But who knows. Yes, the back is made with wide, horizontal boards. And the maker of the one you sent along is from Boston, where she lived and bought a lot of furniture.
