Q: Back in the 1970s, my mother’s friend gave her a desk with a pull-down door that serves as a writing surface. The desk appears to be made of different types of wood and has a lot of carving, inlay and appliqued designs. There’s a metal plaque on the back that says “Furniture of Lasting Elegance and Worth, Detroit Furniture Shops, Detroit, Michigan.” I can’t find any reference to this maker online or in reference books. Can you help?
