Question
Outside
Outside  

Desk
Desk  
Desk is over 80 years old and says it is made by the Skandia Furniture Co. Opens for work area and drawer compartments.  Outside is in pretty good shape but inside drawers need refinished.  Just interested in value as we're selling it.

Answer
according to my info the company started in the late 1890s and was bought out in 1941-42 then the buyer, superior sleeprite of chicago went out in 1949.

nice select veneers on the faces i can see.

in a shop in my area it would sell at 450-650.  in a high end store it might fetch another 100.

hope this is what you need
