My husband bought me Cecile's Parlor Desk several years ago as a present. I was thrilled! When Christmas came along and I opened my presents, I was really surprised to find another of Cecile's Parlor Desks.
He had forgotten that he had already bought me one. They were originally $85.00 each, but he had bought them on sale for $40.00 each . We donated the second desk to be auctioned off in a fund raiser for a child cancer patient that we knew. Glad to say that she is doing well.
This desk is a nice piece of wooden doll furniture . I don't know why American Girl puts those large tags in a spot that is seen!
The desk can be used in several ways and even makes a nice buffet table. The dolls fit nicely in the attached chair.
The desk has six curved legs and a hidden compartment, which reminds me of the old telephone table that we had as a child in my living room. This desk is hardwood, with a hinged, oval top. The seat is cushioned and the front and back of the desk is decorated with gold colored artwork.
