I just received a photo of your secretary. Can you describe the filing cabinet.
This desk is actually a Victorian Side by Side. Side by Sides were popular in the 1890s as combination secretaries and curio cabinets.
Yours, here looks to be a fine example in very good condition. Fair market value on it would be $1200-$1800. Insurance/replacement value should be no less than $2200.
Can you describe the filing cabinet?
Just describe it to me here.
I believe what you are describing is called a dispatchers cabinet, these were used in offices in the 1910s to file paperwork for schedules such as trains and later for early taxi cabs.
