Lot Description:

originally used in Terrace Park High School in Cincinnati, where my grandfather was a teacher and coach in the 1940s and 1950s.  My father used it in his study at home until recently, having had it professionally refinished sometime in the 1990s.  It's a single-pedestal design with four drawers.

Dimensions are 42" wide, 32" deep, and 30" high.  Construction is of solid oak and very sturdy, but the top lifts off and the drawers easily removable, making it not very heavy in sections and easily movable.  There were some gouges in the top that were repaired/filled when it was refinished, and some light scuffs from use afterward, but it's basically in good condition.  The drawer lock is missing, but pedestal locking mechanism works for bottom two drawers.

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.
