This solid wood, leather-topped campaign desk is a truly special piece. Campaign desks are small, easily portable writing tables that originated for use in military campaigns. This one dates to the 1930s and was used in the election campaign for a local judge. With its drop-leaf sides, bamboo-style legs, gold-embossed leather panels, and solid brass hardware, the details of this desk are both simple and stunning. Slightly updated for today's home, this desk still retains its original character. It is a conversation piece as unique as it is beautiful.
