Question
desk
desk  

Lycoming stamp
Lycoming stamp  
I have found a desk at a garage sale.  It is an older style.  Under the pencil drawer in front, there is a print of what looks like a model number of the desk and the Lycoming Company stamp.  I was doing some research on Lycoming furniture and found a desk almost identical to the one I now have.  Please let me know if the photos I am sending don't show up well.  I can resend.

Could you please help me in researching if the desk I have is truly a Lycoming desk and what it could be worth?  Much appreciated.
Steve

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.
