I have a Myrtle Desk-High Point, NC--Not sure about the date…

Customer Question
I have a Myrtle...

I have a Myrtle Desk-High Point, NC--Not sure about the date but I know it was prior to 1955--The emblem is inside the long drawer-the dimensions are 66 inches top length and 36 inches top width--it has a glass cover on top --Could you please tell me if this is worth anything? Thanks

Expert's Assistant: I always love having an appraiser look at my stuff. Sometimes its turned out to be surprisingly valuable.

I am in Atlanta, GA should I locate an appraiser? Can you give me any idea is it could be worth the trouble

Expert's Assistant: Is there anything else the Antiques Appraiser should be aware of?

It has some scrathes on the front but other than that it is in good condition. All the drawers open easily and it appears to be solid wood
