"Bold, industrial and nearly indestructible, the Tanker desk was most often confined to utilitarian uses in mid-century Americana. Today its streamlined craftsmanship earns a whole new appreciation amongst collectors and designers who are restoring this well-built classic and updating its look with modern hues.

Since 1946, the Tanker desk has been manufactured the same way - a double pedestal base, made of thick gauge steel with a natural, brushed finish. Sturdy, reliable and practically immortal, the Tanker was the largest selling commercial desk in the world and well suited for schools, offices and governmental institutions up until the 1970's.

Our single pedestal desk offers great work surfaces with its standard top and pull out tray, is lighter in design than the typical double pedestal tanker desk, and does not overpower a small room. It is not only a conversation piece due to its history, clean lines and finishes, but it is also highly functional with 1 standard drawer-1 pencil drawer and 1 file drawer.

ANECDOTE: Vintage steel, single pedestal desks are extremely rare. We offer a waiting list for our customers. Please call to be included.

NOTE: These pieces are vintage and although we pride ourselves in hand picking the best possible antique pieces, they all will show "character marks", minor dings and dimples acquired over years of service.
