This desk belonged to Laura Brannan Elliott. She was born in 1875. She died in 1924,at the age of 49, from cancer. Her son was 12 at the time, Emerson Elliott. He is Carla's grandad. Think about that, when you look at this desk. Laura was born, only 10 years after the Civil War ended! She saw electricity come about, indoor plumbing and the car! The telephone was invented the year after she was born, who knows when it even came to her town! I think about all the letters she must have written at this desk. Maybe she did her homework at the desk when she was little, and then her kids used it too. I am honored Carla allowed me to do this desk. I love the history and people behind things like this. Now, a whole different generation of Laura's family are enjoying, what was once hers. This is without a doubt, my favorite piece I have ever done! Enjoy it ,people!! Love!!!
