Elegant high-quality solid cherry desk from the 1950s 'Transitional' line by Willett Furniture Company, Louisville, KY.
This is a really lovely, restrained mid-century modern desk. The desktop, crafted from solid cherry planks, has a beautiful flare and sits lightly on the drawer cases, which are supported by substantial yet elegantly tapered cherry legs. The proportions and cherry wood grain are truly beautiful.
From their 1956 ad in Ladies home Journal, about the Transitional collection: "The simple lines, low silhouette and dramatically beautiful solid cherry grain will be completely at home in your home."
This desk measures 52" x 25" x 29.5". This desk is in very good vintage condition, with expected wear and light scratches and scuffs associated with age and gentle use. There is also a custom-fit smoke glass desk protector included.
