This cylinder-front desk formerly belonged to a Washington lawyer, and has now been inherited by his children. The wood is mahogany with English oak secondary wood. All of the brass inlay and trimming are in place, and the overall condition is excellent. The cylinder works quite well. They have asked whether to polish the brass.
