This original, used piece is ‘sold as seen’. It is in excellent, vintage condition. The piece has the blue Ercol label still affixed to the rear, which along with the model’s production history dates it to the mid 1960s. With this in mind, it is in outstanding, original condition; the desk is solidly constructed with no signs of damage or repair, and the original factory finish is still in excellent condition with only a very few, very minor age-related scuffs and marks. For more information please refer to our photos.
