OAK SLANT FRONT SECRETARY DESK (Curved legs and mirror). Over the last half century, my wife and I inherited more furniture from old relatives than we had room to keep.

But keep them we did. It is now time to let go of some of this furniture. This desk was my grandmothers desk. She used it to pay bills and write letter to friends and relatives. In the days before emails, Zoom calls and inexpensive telephone calls, letters were the only practical way to communicate with relatives scattered across the country.

Most evenings, my grandmother sat by her desk and with her occasionally leaky fountain pen wrote a lengthy letter -- oftentimes an answer to an equally long letter from a relative. The stains from her leaking fountain pen are still visible. The desk is oak and in relatively good shape. (It was built before the advent of particle board and pressed wood) It is 48 inches tall, 25 inches wide, 12 inches deep with the top closed and 25 ¾ inches deep with the top opened.
