Our client George V. brought in a beautiful secretary from th 1940's for us to refinish and repair.

Secretary Desk

He told us that one of the drawers was stuck so he was unable to use the secretary properly. As Dan, one of our craftsman, pulled open the drawer he found old letters, newspapers, and grocery lists from the 1950's.
