Our 'new' antique Secretary
My DH inherited this Secretary from his mother who passed away last Sunday. We went ahead and cleared out the valuables from the home in case it was broken into.
This belonged to dh's grandmother. My MIL was 80 when she died, so we have no idea how old this piece is. I'll probably post this on the Antiques Forum.
If any of you are familiar with this, please let me know. It's made of red oak. I haven't dusted it yet, but it's in pretty good condition.

I "allowed" my dh to put his law books in it. :)
