This desk is supposed to be 450 years old. My friend is a descendant of the English Howard family which is where the desk is from, she had no paperwork for it or other history. There are modern screws holding the legs on, it has a few trim pieces missing. Felt has replaced what was leather on thewriting area. Has two deep drawers on each size, one smaller and a drawer in the center. There are also two small drawers on the top part of the desk. And there is a clock that goes with it, which has all it's parts but doesn't work.
Wood with possible veneer, brass handles.
