ANTIQUE DESK CIRCA EARLY 1900'S

MAHOGANY ANTIQUE DESK 52"X30"X18" WITH 6 SIDE SHAPED DRAWERS,1ST DRAWER HAS 3 COMPARTMENTS & MEASURES AT 16"X5"X15" WITH 3 DOVETAILS. THE 2ND & 3RD DRAWERS HAVE 7 DOVETAILS @16"X5"X9". THE SCALLOPED WOOD ON FRONT OF DESK DOESN'T HAVE A PULL OUT DRAWER. THE 4TH, 5TH & 6TH DRAWERS ON THE RIGHT MEASURE AT 10"X15"X9". EACH DRAWER HAS #3 IMPRINTED ON THE SIDE OF DRAWER, WITH 3WL WITH "W" WRITTEN IN BLUE & "3L"IN PENCIL ON ALL 6 OF THE DRAWERS. THE DESK HAS A CRESCENT MOON BACK HAS #689484 IMPRINTED BLACK & #689 IN WHITE RIGHT UNDER IT. THE 4 OF 6 LEGS TAPER FROM 5" TO 3" TO 2" WIDE & HAVE VINES ENGRAVED ON THE FRONT LEGS. THE BACK LEGS ARE STRAIGHT & 8" IN LENGTH. WOOD PEGS WERE FOUND EMBEDDED IN THE LEGS & ARE REMOVABLE & THE RIVETS WERE ROUND ON TOP, NO WOOD VENEER, JUST SOLID WOOD. THE WOOD APPEARS TO BE MAHOGANY WITH A LIGHTER COLOR WOOD TRIMMING THROUGHOUT AND THE HARDWARE USED FOR DRAWERS APPEARS TO BE ORIGINAL. I BELIEVE THAT THE DESK IS FAIRLY GOOD CONDITION CONSIDERING ITS AGE & IT HAS NOT BEEN RESTORED. nO PICTURES OF THIS DESK WAS FOUND ON THE INTERNET SO I CAN ONLY CONCLUDE THAT IT IS A RARE FIND.
