Vintage 1887 advertising image from Scientific American magazine. It a great black and white furniture image of a roll top desk drawing.
This stately piece of furniture would be an impressive addition to any home. It has 8 drawers and over 20 pigeon holes to put all sorts of stuff. I wonder how many of these have survived the test of time and still can be found in people’s homes.
