This beautiful desk has sustained 150+ years of honest wear and tear, maintained by diligent restoration along the way. The handles are replaced. The bottom to the center drawer is also replaced, as evidenced by the pale poplar versus the darker mahogany in the others. Some of the drawer dividers are additions- some being thicker than others. Finally, the bottom 2" of the feet have been restored: notice the slight difference in color.
