It was bought second hand in the late 1920’s. It has 6 drawers - 3 small and 1 file size draws on each side. It comes in 3 pieces. Each side is a piece and the top lifts off as the third piece. The lock on the roll top works. The roll top is in good working order. 5’ wide, 46” tall. The true color is a little more of a medium oak. The pictures, because of the lighting make it look lighter than it actually is.
My grandfather used it in his place of business, then it was in my parents house for decades, then I have had it for at least 40 years.
