Handsome mid-century modern double pedestal desk or vanity by Franklin Shockey Furniture from their Sculpted Pine Collection. In wonderful vintage condition. It does have some nicks and dings due to age and use but we have restored and touched up the original finish, so it has a beautiful patina. We did give it a coat of wipe on poly for durability and the original moldings on the lower back have been replaced with new replicas. Please see photos. Circa 1950s.

Description

We were so excited when we came across this splendid mid-century modern desk. Or is it a vanity? We obtained it along with several other matching pieces from the same collection so check our other listings too! It is by Franklin Shockey Furniture and from their Sculpted Pine Collection. Comprised of SOLID knotty pine! No veneers at all on this piece and it has all the natural character of the natural wood knot holes and all. This line of furniture by Franklin Shockey is a pleasant combination of the sleek undulating lines of mid-century modern mixed with the rustic pine of Dude Ranch or Adirondack furniture. Its arched legs and softly rounded edges have some similarities to Heywood Wakefield’s solid maple mid-century modern pieces as does its smooth beautiful finish. This double pedestal desk has a center drawer and four drawers in each pedestal. All the drawers have the unique carved bowtie front and slender brass hardware. It offers plenty of storage and will look magnificent wherever you use it whether as a desk or vanity.

The Franklin Shockey Furniture Company of Lexington N.C. has a unique story. Franklin Shockey owned a financial investment firm in NYC. Sometime in 1940 he travelled south with his business partner, George Ennis, to purchase plywood for a small wooden item Mr. Shockey had invented. He fell in love with the beautiful solid woods he found there, purchased a factory, and began making his solid wood furniture. The furniture company became very successful operating into the 1960s. Although the furniture business was successful Mr. Shockey never stopped being involved with his investment firm. In 1980 Franklin Shockey passed at the age of 80.

We know you will love this piece as we do. Make it yours!
