1960s school desk made by Heywood Wakefield. Constructed of chrome, steel and "HeyWoodite", a patented material that was tough, durable and fire-resistant and made of various plastics. Heywood used this material for desk tops, tables, chair seats and seat backs. The company produced and sold household furniture, school furniture, theatre seating and auditorium seating and has always been equated with high quality mid-century decor.

The desk is painted a wonderful 60s green and has nice, sturdy chrome legs. The lid is raised and is held open on a hinge mechanism that works beautifully still to this day. This would make a wonderful homework table that would help keep your dining room table clean during the school year! (I remember those days!)

Overall measurements are approx. 25" tall, 24 wide and 18" deep. There is wear and scratching where you would expect to see it on an old school desks, especially around the pencil/pen groves and on the front where zippers or pens would come in contact with the paint. There is no "graffiti", just nondescript straight-line scratches. The top was incredibly easy to clean up. I did leave a stamped "@ " sign up in the upper right hand corner of the desk top because it looks kinda cool, but this could be easily removed if you prefer. Overall, this is a wonderful, solid piece with appropriate aging/wear/imperfections from dozens of studious little people over the decades.

Please contact me for shipping to your zip code. Due to the size and weight no international shipping is available on this item.

**Note** True color most closely resembles the first and last pictures. Props not included.
