Roll top desks made their appearance in the last quarter of the 19th Century, but were still a fixture in offices until almost the 1930's. These desks were made predominantly in oak, but examples were also made in walnut, mahogany, maple and birch. Roll tops have always been popular in the antique market and rose dramatically in value until the late 1990's, value and demand for them since then has declined a great deal. Today most comparables in average condition sell for about $1000.00 , $500.00 at auction.
