You are bidding on a Cutler late 1880's - 1890's solid oak postmasters roll-top desk. Raised panels on all sides and drawer fronts. Includes working roll-top and two slide-out writing surfaces as well as 21 drawers, 10 slots, one cabinet and two envelope slots in the wings. When roll-top is closed, all external drawers automatically lock though I have no key to lock the roll-top. This is a LARGE desk at 6' long, 3' deep and 4 1/2' tall and is very heavy. The top section including main desk surface is removable for easier transport and set-up. As you can see in the pictures, the desk is in remarkable condition and includes appraisal papers and receipt. I welcome your questions and will answer them as best I can. No chair is included with the desk. Third party shipping and packaging will be paid for and arranged by the buyer. I will deliver (blanket wrapped) in a passenger van - at my earliest convenience - inside the continental US for $1.00 per mile one way plus reasonable meals and lodging expenses both ways. I will not be held responsible for any shipping or delivery damage. Item is sold as is, no returns or refunds.
Additionally, I have had several comments that the pictures were not detailed enough. The original photos were taken in my basement with a flash, the new photos (and t are more available on request) were taken in ambient light with the camera on a tripod. <
