Eighteenth-century desks often featured a pull-down C-curved top fashioned from a single piece of wood.This curved top formed the basis for the slatted C-curved tambour of the early 19th century and eventually the S-curve of mid- to late 19th- and 20th-century desks.A piece that has spent several generations in the same family may have been manufactured locally, and company history can help you determine its age.Janet Beal has written for various websites, covering a variety of topics, including gardening, home, child development and cultural issues.

Take a thorough set of measurements for your desk, including height, depth and width of both the bottom desk and the tambour, or roll-top.Note whether the top and bottom sections of your desk are held together by screws or wooden pegs.Pegs are an older wood-joining technique, one that dated back to pioneers and perpetuated in communities where metal hardware had to be brought in from a distant factory.Determining the exact age of any piece of antique furniture can be challenging.

Depending on information provided by the piece itself, you may be able to come within a few years of dating it or may have to settle for a span of 50 years or longer.Remove all drawers, partitions and moveable pieces to check for possible identifying labels.

Send a pic and get one in return and if we're both digging each other we can get together soon. m4w they might get you thru the day but not thru life until you let them know how you feel. Lots of times I like to use the Mrs throughout the day; bending her over in the kitchen for a few minutes then pulling out and telling her I am done with her for now having her ride me as I watch TV or a movie . while she's laying down in bed reading or on her laptop..
