This desk is 57" long, both sides are higher than the middle. The left and right side is 34" high and the middle is 301/2 " in the middle . There are 5 drawers on each side and a larger drawer in the middle. The top 2 drawers are hidden by a door that you pull down. It has 8 ornate legs that are carved out and there is some carving on the front. The center drawer looks to be painted with green and gold flowers.The 2 pull down doors are decorated in with green and gold looks to be some type of emblem. I believe it is either mahogany or cherry. It looks to be all wood , no veneer. This desk has been in my family for well over 50 years.
