This Victorian period rotary desk was made by famous maker, "Wooton of Indiana," but the original identifying signature plate is lost. Solid oak, there are two swing out banks of cubicles for papers on this antique library or office desk. Pasteboard letter holder inserts are original, dating from about 1875.
An engraved plate from the original dealer reads "American Desk & Seating, Chicago." William Wooton also invented the famous cabinet desk and the iron framed schoolhouse student double desk.
The restored finish is in excellent condition, preserving mars, losses and stains for antique character, see photos. All sides are paneled with deep moldings. Drawers have hand cut dovetail joints and carved pulls. Rotary mechanisms open smoothly.
Measurements are 60" long, 33" deep, 31 1/2" tall and the kneehole is about 20" wide and 24 1/2" high. With both rotary files open, width is 91" overall.
