I'm trying to find info on an old desk with a place for a typewriter or office machine which can fold into the desk when not in use. The number on the little decal is #379 possibly from the 30's or 40's. Any information will be appreciated. It is probable oak but not sure. Thanks

I am trying to find out information on an old desk. It is a large roll top with quarter-sawn oad. It has a little metal tag with the #5951 on it. It has five drawers, three on the left, two on the right (one of them is a file cabinet) and the desk has a locking mechanism so when the roll top is down the drawers lock. Any info. or help on finding info. on this desk is greatly apppreciated.

I have an old oak desk I was told came out of a train station in NY. It is made of Tiger Oak and the patent # is 2178940. It also has a spring loaded typewriter drawer. Please let me know more about this desk.

We have a large old, oak desk manufactured by the Standard Furniture Co. It has a seal marked Horrocks Herkimer, New York with the #52981 stamped on it. I would like to know what year this was manufactured? Any other information about this desk would be appreciated. Thanks

We just purchased a Standard desk from a local used office furniture store. The numbers on the desk are CAT 3, in black ink are the numbers 6149, and in red ink are 33257. The store that we purchased the desk from said that the desk came out of a local factory. How do we find out the age of the desk? It's a very unique shape, made of walnut wood stock.
