1922 Dental office desk by American cabinet Co a division of Hamilton manufacturing Co. All the information regarding this desk and it's manufacturer are held in the Smithsonian archives and can be accessed via there Web site. Several of the photos I received from the Smithsonian are attached..this desk is a gem and possibly the last one in existence according to my vintage furniture colleagues. These desks were thrown away when steel and porcelain was introduced. The desk has the original assembly date tag and was designed to resist Warping considering buildings were not conditioned back in the day. Most of the desk is mahogany, the drawer fronts are quarter sawn oak & the slides are maple. The bottom cabinet is for storing a vulcaniger for lead, gold and silver Smelting, in fact there's a Vulcanizer lid burn on the left corner of the desk. The desk was built for adaptability for add ons and has the duct opening for hot metal tray & the 3 openings for the black marble inserts under the top of the desk. It has space to incorporate gas lines and has a built in garbage can. This desk has a fantastic and exciting history and all the information can be found about this desk and the manufacturer on the Smithsonian web site.Vintage dental tools and the milk trays drawer inserts can be found on the web $1850.00 for the desk only.
