This is a good antique Gustav Stickley writing desk from the early 1900s Mission and Arts & Crafts period in good condition. The piece is made of excellent quarter sawn oak with an old refinish. It is very heavy and bulky in the early style and has early copper pulls. The sides and back are paneled and there are double pins at the top and bottom. There are two supporting beams that run the width of the piece and terminate in flush through tenons on the sides. There is a lower shelf in the knee area and the drawer interiors have minor remnants of white paint as pictured. The top is 1″ thick and the desk is model #709 and is Unsigned.
