Herter Brothers Ebonized Fall-Front Desk
Sloans & Kenyon out of Chevy Chase, MD will be putting the ebonized Herter Brothers desk to the right up for sale on November 16th. The back is stamped with the “Herter Bro’s” moniker, so you can be assured that this is the real deal.
The front of the desk is inlaid with “grapevines, stylized chrysanthemums and butterfly, in light satinwood or maple”, according to S&K. The listing does not mention if the desk’s original “H” key has survived to be a part of the sale.
Bidding is expected to be strong with an expected range of $40,000 to $60,000 with a starting price of $20,000.
I don’t recommend storing the family crayons in this one.
