My name is ***** ***** I'd love to help.Use the +Add Files feature next to the SEND button to upload photos of the item, including marks, labels or signatures.The feature works best when you add ONE picture, put a word in the text box, hit send, then do the next.
I can only comment on the item in the original question. New items must be in a new question with For Rarewares as the first few words.
As for the desk, please also send one picture of the label. This company changed names slightly over the years and that will help dating the piece.
Here are the names and roughly the years for this company's different names-
1890-1903...Coombe Furniture Factory Company Limited
1903 ...Watson and Coombe Furniture
1929...F.E. Coombe Company
1963-1972 (closed)...Coombe Furniture Factory Company Limited
This spinet desk looks to be made of Canadian elm and was likely made circa 1900-1910 based on the details, turning, and the popularity of this style during the early 1900's. The retail value of the desk is $600USD and the
insurance/replacement value is $1800.
