Customer Question
I have roll top...

I have roll top desk that looks to be the same as in the ad It has the s top with 3 drawers on the right.and 2 small drawers at the top left side.also has a row of cubby holes across the inside top .The desk has been in the family for a bout 90 years ,as far as I know..It locks and still has the key.I was offered a lot of money years ago by a funiture store.

Expert's Assistant: I always love having an appraiser look at my stuff. Sometimes its turned out to be surprisingly valuable. Is there anything else important you think the Antiques Appraiser should know?

It has an old oak chair that has always been with it,that swivels and rocks.
