Lot Description:

and he removed this desk from the Kansas City Western Auto building when they vacated their offices from there.  It's an executive Art Decco style; I'm guessing it dates from the 1910s or 1920s.  I can't find any evidence of it ever having been refinished, and it bears the scars one would expect from being used as a utilitarian piece for many decades.  There are too many scratches to count, some deep gouges on the inside corners of the pedestal (from the chair hitting it here), and some missing veneer on the right front corner of the top.

Measurements are 60" wide, 36" deep, and 30" high.  There are a total of eight drawers (the bottom on the left side is double-height for files) and two pull-out writing surfaces.  One small knob is missing from the left writing-surface pullout, and the key for the lock is missing . . . otherwise it's complete with all hardware.

These are available for your inspection weekdays with a phone call to set up a time. Kirk has updated and ready to let someone else enjoy these pieces. Located in the Dean’s DownTown Underground (Caves at 1501 W 31st Kansas City, MO 64108) to set up a time to inspect these call Kirk @ 816-931-6222 any weekday.
