Shipping
Due to the larger size, this item requires freight service. White glove service, fully insured, FOB Shreveport, delivered and placed inside your home (first floor only). Typically 5-7 weeks, depending on your location.
Please note this longer time period for white glove service; no refunds will be given because of the length of delivery time. Free pick-up is also available at our location in Shreveport, LA.

Condition
Good condition for its age, normal signs of age, use, dings, scratches, imperfections. Separations on the flat desk top, filled over the years. Various ink stains. I always provide multiple photos that should be considered as an integral part of the description and I encourage you to email with any questions prior to making a purchase. Please keep in mind antique furniture should be purchased for its uniqueness, higher quality material and craftsmanship and antique patina…NOT for like-new condition!
