Vintage Consensus Collection by Drexel MCM Writing Desk in Ash on Brass Plated Metal Frame

Handsome vintage ash veneer MCM writing desk on a brass plated metal frame with solid brass pulls from the Consensus Collection by Drexel. Beautiful condition, keeping in mind that this is vintage and not new so will have signs of use and wear. The upper back left corner and the right side on the back we have replaced and repaired a bit of the veneer. There are some surface scratches and a few undetermined darker spots on the top about an inch diameter that do not affect the finish. The legs have some aged white patina in the brass, possibly from water, none of which detracts from the beauty of this piece. Please see photos and zoom in for details. We attempt to portray any imperfections. Circa, Mid-20th Century.

Drexel Furniture Company was founded in 1903 in Drexel, North Carolina by six businessmen for a total investment of $14,000.00. Sam Huffman, one of the initial founders, managed the enterprise until his death in 1935 when his son, Robert O. Huffman took the helm. By 1950 under the younger Huffman’s leadership Drexel had grown from a small factory to a leader in furniture manufacturing. They acquired other furniture companies along the way and by the late 1950s employed 2300 workers. The 1960s had them adding industrial and hospitality furniture to their lines. In 1968 they were purchased, and Drexel Enterprises became Drexel Heritage Furnishings, Inc. They continued to add to their styles and lines and were sold again and then in 1986 became part of Masco Corporation one of the country’s largest furniture manufacturers. They are now based in High Point, NC and operate ten factories in North Carolina and one in South Carolina and are one of the leading furniture manufacturers in the world.

This fabulous writing desk from the Consensus Collection by Drexel is a MUST HAVE!! What are you waiting for? Make it yours!!
