This is another yard sale find a few years
ago. This desk as you can see has four
drawers, the top opens up to store your
stationary. The back has a small shelf
that has a hole on the right side which I
believe is for an ink well and a place for holding
pens and pencils. I do not know the age of
the desk or the name. It reminds me of
a sea captains desk. What is your opinion?

I'm not sure either what kind of desk this is. But your assumption of it sounds good to me. Boy you have been finding some really nice pieces of furniture at yard sales. I can see that your really enjoying them and taking good care of them. I just love how it has the four little drawers.

Not only do you discover nice pieces of furniture at yard sales, but you always find a good use for them, too.

Thank you Anne and Deann for your nice comments. I have been lucky on finding some good pieces and yes I do put them to good use.
