Seller's Notes: Vintage Mid Century Tanker Desk Tanker desks like this one were manufactured in the 1940s and 1950s and were known for being exceptionally well made and solid. This is a piece in very good condition. There is no brand name visible on the desk, but it is a fine example of the tanker type desk, such as those made by Steelcase, McDowell & Craig or Shaw-Walker The desk features: Black Steel construction Grey/Silver Steel trim/handles/hardware "Wood" Formica laminate surface on top of desk Steel tapered legs/feet. 6 Drawers: 3 left side drawers Wide center drawer 2 right side drawers: one standard drawer and one large file cabinet drawer with insert to hold hanging files 2 pullout writing flap tables (one with pull-knob, one without) Lock on center drawer (no key) The drawers easily open and close. DIMENSIONS: 30W x 60L x 28.5H. The desk is in unusually good condition - the "wood" surface has no cuts or nicks, just one small circular (very slight) discoloration in the far right corner where a lamp was attached for a number of years -- please see photographs for detail. There is also some wear at the bottom opening between the drawers, from where a chair would have rubbed against over the years, but nothing that a fresh coat of paint couldn't solve. Likewise the minimal nicks in parts of the sliver trim - we have tried to show all of this in the photos. Overall, the condition of the desk is very good and needs only a little work to refurbish. An excellent opportunity to pick up a great piece at a great price. From a smoke free, pet free home.
