moreThe seller says: Antique solid walnut executive desk formerly owned by a prominent Oakland citizen. The desk is fine grained, book matched, walnut, no veneer. It has always been cared for and was recently refinished. Glass top has a small imperfection on one side, but the table is still usable with or without it. Solid brass hardware, aged with patina.
Original owner was Mr. George Killion, formerly the Chairman of the Democratic National Committee under President Truman. Mr. Killion was also the President of American President’s Line and Chairman of Metro-Goldwyn Mayer (MGM) film making company. The desk has been passed down by three owners of the house that Mr. Killion lived in, that I owned for nearly 20 years. I no longer have room to house such a beautiful piece. The pictures don’t do it justice and it is unfortunately professionally wrapped for moving. When recently refinished a few years ago, by a top quality San Francisco refinisher, its value was estimated at approximately 5,000 dollars. less
