*Because the cost varies greatly with the weight, size, and destination of an item, we can't provide a firm and fixed price quote for shipping in the shipping estimate calculator in this listing. Please provide us with your zip code and we will find a competitive shipping quote for your area. If you are happy with our estimate just let us know and we will add this cost to the listing for online checkout. Our shipping estimate will be for a door-to-door blanket wrap shipping service or white glove shipping service if requested. Delivery times vary depending on how fast we can find a shipper and how well-traveled certain areas are. We do not recommend Greyhound or a Freight service for transporting larger pieces but these are options for smaller pieces of furniture.
We can facilitate in-person purchase or pick-up during normal business hours, just let us know in advance so we can place the item on hold until you arrive (If you are purchasing a piece at Refindings and paying at Refindings we do not mind holding the piece for you as long as you can confirm a date that you will be coming to purchase/pick up the item. If you do not give us a confirmed date for pick up the piece will not be held for you.)
If you wish to purchase an item online first and pickup in person at a later date just let us know and we can remove the shipping costs in advance of your purchase.
Here is a stunning teak Secretary Desk by Bernhard Pedersen & Sons, circa 1960s. This piece has 3 large drawers for storage, a pull-out desk for working from home, a vanity when you need to check to see how your day is going, small compartments for holding your mail, and a tambour door that opens and closes when you pull out the desk to hide everything when you are done. You can also turn the key and lock the desk for extra security. This piece is perfect for apartment living and a beautiful piece to showcase in any home.
This piece was partially restored to bring back its original look and feel. There are some small scratches that can be seen in our last photo around the top of the tambour door. The hairpin legs were added to this piece as the original base was not strong enough to support the weight of this piece. There are some light lines on the desktop from sliding in and out when opening/closing consistent with use (see out 2nd last photo for details). We did have our local locksmith make a key for the original lock and this piece does come with 2 keys. Overall this piece is in very good condition.
