It's deemed an old, heavy wood desk. It isn't really in perfect shape but is fairly useable as they are or, with just a few work, may perhaps be converted into a beautiful desk. The desk is at three pieces - two sides as well as a top. Both sides with drawers weight excessive, excellent wood with attractive grain. The superior isn't much more than much door that rests round the two sides. The very best has some stains and chipped wood about the edge. And my daughter wrote her name about it in pen when she was 7. But, for $50, you will have sturdy home-office desk.
