I have 2 Simmons Desks. I know who made them. I NEED to know what year and value. They both have the Simmons label in the desk drawer.
The first desk & chair labels match each other. Brown paint over the original pink. These came out of the college dorms. I would say the boys didn't like the pink. Measurements of first desk are 34" by 21".
I haven't been able to find a Simmons Desk that looks like the second one. And believe me I have searched. The drawer doesn't have a place for knobs. Shelves on both front and back. The label is different with Bonderite added on the tag. Again, brown paint over the pink. This one had a layer of formica glued to the top(removed now) maybe to cover up the steel that was showing through. Measurements of second desk are 42" by 22".
I'm trying to "DATE" both of these. Maybe the 1930's? Are they from different years being the labels are different? Did Norman Bel Geddes design these? Also, value of first desk & chair together and the value of second desk.
