Thank you so much for waiting. I am up and running again!This is a vintage Chippendale style Jasper Cabinet Co. secretary desk with hutch in red with painted trim by the Jasper Cabinet Company in Jasper, IN. Model number 875. Jasper had been in business since 1904 and closed in 2002. This hutch dates to 1976, the year of the bicentennial. If it was a trade show, it could have been an early release model if you think you bought it before then. This hutch has a current value of $800 to $900.00.It is important for you to click the stars after you have read this answer.
