An exceptionally beautiful mid-century modern writing desk done in the manner of Carl Bissman’s 1950’s pieces with their soft rounded lines and corners and sculped drawers pulls. Comprised of solid walnut construction typical of Bissman furniture. It offers lots of room for storage with seven drawers. A bank of three on each side and one in the center. The bottom drawer on each side is deeper to be used for files. It has gorgeous woodgrain and is finished nicely on its back, so it can float in a room. Carl Bissman was a homebuilder, an inventor, and entrepreneur born in 1893 in Cleveland, Ohio and moved to Springfield, Missouri in 1919 after serving in the Army during WWI. He began building furniture out of native Ozark walnut when materials for building homes became scarce during WWII. His furniture was built for a very brief time from 1947 to soon after Bissman’s death in 1951 at the age of 57. He made two lines: The Mid-Century Modern Line and the Walnut Colonial Line. This piece we believe to be from his Mid-Century Modern Line. Beautiful, well-constructed, and useful. Make it yours.
