Thomasville; Ernest Hemingway Collection Desk

"Writing and travel broaden your ass if not your mind and I like to write standing up."  -Ernest Hemingway
If you like to write standing up, this desk from the Ernest Hemingway Collection by Thomasville is perfect.  If you like to write sitting down, it works and looks great with a stool too.  The desk is beautifully crafted with inlaid, embossed leather, a patinated brass gallery and patinated brass footrest on one of the stretchers.  There is a single drawer on the front.  When the drop-front is opened, there is a very large leather writing/ work surface, six drawers and four compartments.  This is a show-stopper in person.  The patina is beautiful and the look will only improve and richen with age.  55" h., 45" w., 26" d.  American, late 20th c.  $1,250.00 SALE $625.00
Condition:  Very good vintage condition with age appropriate wear.
