    probably an antique. google “Vintage Industrial Teachers Desk by Standard Furniture Company.” it’s identical to the first search results under images, but with metal pulls. looks danish modern or american industrial.

    stamped “Standard. Herkimer, NY.” age indeterminate. solid wood construction. this isn’t ikea fare.

    some scuffs and scratches. needs new pulls and stain or paint, but structurally sound. and heavy!

    surface is a generous 32″D x 50″W. total height is 30-1/4″. with 6 drawers: (3) 5″H on the left, (1) 3″H over the knee hole, (1) 5″H and (1) 11″H file drawer on the right. (2) typewriter boards.

    if you don’t need a desk, it might be a conversation-piece side board. or maybe a potting table. or a butcher’s block.

    FREE (or $0 in the parlance of our times) to a good home, unless you like giving money away; in which case, name your price! at a minimum, you’ll probably need a pickup truck. i’ll gladly help you load it, but i drive a hatchback, so delivery isn’t an option.

    anyway, if you’re interested, gmail me at w.s.redblack and i’ll send you some pictures.

    cheers, and have a great week.



    The Desk has gone to a real, live teacher, who is also a really nice guy.



    OH SHOOT! My wife luvs those type of desks. Ever since her job switched out all their old desks like that one for some “ergo” desks she has had nothing but neck, shoulder back pain.
