Antique Student Desk on antique cast iron stand. Beautiful student desk from the turn of the last century, mounted on a cast iron Wilcox and Gibb, treadle sewing machine stand from (I believe) the 1880's. The history on this is my Grandfather got hold of a handful of these desks when a one room school house in Marlyand, near Gettysburg, was dismantled. A some point after WWII he restored the desk and mounted it to an old sewing machine base he had in his barn. It ended up in his farmhouse. When he died in the early 1970's it went to my father who then left it to me. A normal American story.
