Early Drop Front Lady's Writing Desk w/ G.A . Schwarz Label SOLD

Status: Sold
Description:
This is a hard-to-find highback early drop front lady's writing desk from the 1905-1910 period in 1" scale. Very nicely made, most likely in Germany, with delicate brass chain holding the drop front and brass knob pull. Interior shows compartments. Nice finish on the wood with delicate thin legs. Label underneath shows that it was sold in G. A. Schwarz (who was the brother of F.A.O. Schwarz) toy store in Philadelphia. Also pictured with a finely-made Gerlack inkwell and pen holder (sold separately). Height of desk is 4 1/2". Nice condition with no breaks or repairs--minor wear. Would look splendid with an Edwardian dollhouse lady.
