Customer Question
I have a small...

I have a small carved desk that is the replica of the desk Patriot George Mason wrote the Virginia Declaration of Rights on. It is 7 " x 8"The carver was a very renown Penny Doll artist from Richmond VA. Fred Laughon, cabinetmaker

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?

The desk is signed and dated August 1978. What would be the market for this item? Karen Bazzle
