Antique Writing Desk (near 105th & 3rd Ave NW Seattle)

This is an old, solid cherry, wood writing desk. We are asking $75 let us know what you think.

Sadly in the 1970's it was "restored" using antique paint styles promoted by Ace Hardware & Ernest Hardware - it was a fad. To return it to the original condition would take some effort.

Regardless this is a solid desk and perfect height for use by someone what wants to be surrounded by real wood feel.

It depicts a black boy with reins riding in an ostrich-driven cart. Notice the cargo area with rear mail slot and designs of mail & horns on the side. 

Measures approx. 7.5" in length x 1.75"x 4.75"

Has wear from use, some oxidation, and age. Toy appears to have all the mechanisms with exception of possible piece on spinning element & reins are gone - which were fabric or string. Currently is not in working condition. Selling as best described. See pictures - more available on request.

Made in Germany 1889-1918

Ask for Miles 206-364-7662

A amazing addition to any toy collection! Notice the design is similar but entirely different from items sold on eBay. This particular item is nowhere to be found except here! This toy has reddish cart the ones being sold on eBay are yellow - thus this is harder to find.

On a Lehmann site the following is the description of this toy"
"Made from 1889 to 1918 in Germany by Lehmann (designated EPL 170) this toy, with a mail slot on the top and envelope insignia on the side, shows an African boy riding on a two-wheeled mail cart being pulled by an ostrich. The toy moves forward by string drive as the boy guides the ostrich with reins and a whip in his hands. This is the all red version.

This toy is shown with a scarce early box that names the toy “Going to the Fair.” This was either a translation error or an early designation of this toy. The “spindle press” trademark dates this toy to 1889.

Please note this toy being offered does not have the box - sadly.

Vintage Underwood Typewriters

I have 3 fantastic antique Underwood Typewriters for sale. I have looked at each and all keys work and everything seems usable. Of course since these are Vintage Underwood Typewriters that are nearly 100 years old they are intended for collectors. These are unusually nice items -all have portable cases and include fresh ribbons. The first few buyers even get accessories like paper and eraser pencils. All are sold as-is and would benefit from professional cleaning and light use (if any).

Note: If you have knowledge about these typewriters and can give me better ages or specifics, I am all ears.
