I'm hoping someone could tell me about this piece

johnnytugs1September 10, 2010

I just recieved this from someone that knows we like old furniture. It seems to be some kind of secretary's piece. It stands about 36" high is 18" deep and 60" long.

There are 3 draws up top the middle draw has a drop down desk in it, and below is a 2 door storage space. these are the best pictures that I have for now.

Thanks for your help in advance.

It's a very nice mahogany veneer secretary desk.
Can't tell the age without seeing better pictures.
And by the way the word is "drawer" not "draw".

Be careful not to mess up the leather.
