Customer Question

I have an Brandt small secretaries desk. I would like to find more about it and the possible value. It is 33" high, 25" wide and 15" deep (closed). When you pull out the drawer the roll top opens. exposing 3 drawers and two ink wells, and then it is approximately 24" deep the open desk( writing surface) top is hinged and exposes two leather writing pads with a wood frame around each . There is a Brandt tag on the inside of the drawer. And the wood is marked as cherry.
JA: I always love having an appraiser look at my stuff. Sometimes its turned out to be surprisingly valuable. Is there anything else the Antiques Appraiser should be aware of?
Customer: I know Brandt operated from 1905 to 1985 and is being operated by now buy another party, possibly former employees. But I have been told they will not assist in any Identification.

I have already paid $76 and had 3 people all trying to get me an answer and you want more. This site is a joke. There is to much garbage on the site, that makes it confusing. I am going to someone local. Send me my refund.
