I can tell you with 100% confidence that your desk is not a Cutler desk, but a great one nonetheless. Cutler desks have different looking decks. If you could show images of the entire desk (epecially the front drawers), I can validate this observation further for you. Still, I want to reiterate that you have a marvelous antique desk that is very desirable. I have been studying antique rolltop desks and their many variations for 8 years now. I hope this helps. If you need i can share pictures with you of typical Cutler desks.

Expertise

In regards to American antique, vintage and collectible furniture I can help with wood identification, styles, age, periods, historical coatings, materials, techniques, repair, restoration, refinishing, and value. I do not study mid century and later furniture nor do I deal in lamps, and other smalls. robertsantiques@cox.net You may ask for values and I will give you current market values, I will not give you 'feel good' values. Understand that there are many factors that contribute to market value. If you want a feel good, unrealistic number, please call a local inexperienced appraiser. It is my desire to help you and in doing so I increase my knowledge as well. For that I thank you.

Experience

I have been in the antiques furniture and restoration business and in the sales of antique furniture for 40+ years and have continued my education in the trade attending workshops and seminars by various organizations, institutions, and private collectors.
