Update: The Desk is worth at least $3,200. There is one on Ebay right now for that price that has been refurbished and half the drawers don't work. I found out it is Asian Rosewood. An Asian Rosewood Partner's Double Pedestal Desk. Un-freaking-believable.
Moral? Good things come to those who wait. Hooray! :-)
Cherstin and Desk, out.
