Another auction bargain

Yesterday was auction day (the one we like takes place on the first Sunday of every month), so while the rest of you sports fans (and commercial critics) were watching the soggiest Superbowl ever, G-Dog and I were checking out some European antiques. We found a couple of bargains -- an iron fireplace screen, a hall tree, and this awesome rolltop desk.


The plate on the front above the rolltop roughly dates the desk to the year our house was built.


It took me until today to get a photo of the desk because we had to break it down into three pieces in order to get it home and then up the stairs to the study. We didn't have time to reassemble it until after work today. Now that we have it all back together, it's never going anywhere ever again.
