Antique Armoire/Desk

This has been in our family for at least one century. The cabinets open and there is a pull out platform so it can be used as a desk. Crazy awesome detail in the legs, warping and chipped paint on the top.

I’m not finding this same one but what I believe it to be is a Spanish Vargueño desk, a wooden cabinet with marquetry and inlaid ornaments that has many small drawers, compartments and shelves for storing papers and objects.

Most of these date from before World War Two, mid 1920's through 1939. These desks tend to be a mix of antique styles such as Gothic and Jacobean Revival with a Art Deco style spin on it. Sadly demand for desks like this is currently very modest, a result of the Baby Boom generation downsizing. Currently comparable desks sell at auction for under $150.00
