This was our Grandfather's work desk at PG+E in San Francisco for his entire 45 year career. He was the only person to use this desk and brought it home upon his retirement. The desk was constructed by the Rucker Fuller Desk Company in San Francisco. The chair was constructed by the High Point Bending and Chair Company in Silver City, North Carolina. Both items are in good condition, used indoors only and have never been refinished. We do not have the key for the drawer lock and the roll top does not appear to have ever had a lock mechanism installed in it.

This is a large desk, measuring 72x36x44. It does break down into it's 3 component parts (desk and side drawers) to make transport a little easier.

Due to the size and weight of the desk and chair - WE WILL NOT SHIP THIS ITEM - You must pick up the items upon winning the auction

The desk and chair are located in Sacramento, CA. and are being sold as-is.

There is nothing broken that I am aware of. The only things that I have noticed are a spot on the bottom inside (drawer bottom) of one of the small drawers that looks like an ink stain and a 4-5" circle mark on the upper top part of the desk on the right hand side that can be seen in the pictures (#7). There is what I would call "normal wear and tear" around where the screws go to hold the 3 main parts together from being disassembled and reassembled a couple of times. Whoever wins this will be very happy with it

There is a rubber bump strip(?) on the front part of the chair seat that is worn. See picture #1

This is a neat desk and if I had a spot for it in our house, we wouldn't be selling it.
