19th century carved English oak five drawer writing desk, hall table, or possibly a larger vanity if you had a mirror. Gorgeous turned wood barley twist legs and stretcher. Carvings on the desk are deep and profound, and all appear to be in nice condition with no significant breaks, cracks, etc.. The top of the desk is a little lighter in color being that it is probably around 140 years old. The writing surface is smooth and functional.
The two bottom drawers can be a little tiny bit sticky at times, but they have been functional for me. As you can see in the photos, there are some small very thin hairline cracks in the barley twist. This is fairly normal with any similar piece of furniture that is roughly the same age. Not noticeable until you look for it, you will see that the molding on the right side of the kneehole is missing (last photo). Honestly, I didn't notice it until I was taking these photos.
Clean green felt has been added to the bottom of each drawer. And overall this piece is great! Still solid and functional as she sits now.Pretty much all cleaned up and ready to go! The desk measures roughly 48" long x 29" deep x 30 tall... Kneehole area is 23" tall x 14.5" wide. All pieces are located in Lynnwood, WA, 98036.

Between my photos, description, and your option to ask questions beforehand, there should be no discrepancy whatsoever in what it is that you are receiving.

The same normal everyday rational rules of human engagement apply here! Treasure hunting for you is how I pay the bills.
