It still has the maker's original tag on the back; it was made by Faribault Furniture in Minnesota. Original finish; in good overall condition. Has an interesting "torch" detail at the top (see last photo). Mirror has some speckles which are to be expected at this age. The left cabinet has four shelves which are all adjustable; however, two of the pegs are missing for the fourth shelf (each shelf takes four pegs).
The original key has been stuck in the lock on the glass door for over 60 years; another key is included which locks the slant front of the desk. The backboard behind the lower cabinet on the right side is slightly warped, and could be nailed back into place if you choose (see 7th photo). Contents pictured are not included. From a non-smoking, pet-free home.
