To all whont t may concern:

Be it known that I, .lor-TN GEAMELsrAcr-IER, a citizen of the United States, residing at J asper, in the county of Dubois and State of Indiana, have invented a new and original Design for a Desk, (Oase 13,) of which the following is a specification.

This invention relates to a new and origin al design for a desk; and it has forits object to provide a design. of this character 'that shall be both useful and ornamental.

rIhe leading -feature of the design resides in a desk having amain ilat rectangular table supporting a cabinet-top provid ed with quadrantal end pieces and a roll-curtain connecting the curved edges of said end pieces, a

. drawer-holding pedestal arranged at one end of the main table and formed at its upper end with a squared cabinet portion extending the full height and lying at one side of one of said quadrantal end pieces, said squared cabinet portion being provided with a rectangular front opening and a vertically-disposed rollcurtain connecting the vertical side edges of said opening.

A minor feature of the design resides in combining with the features above enumerated an upright back portion for the cabinet-A top of the main table, which back portion is formed with a plurality of pigeonholes and a compartment in one upper corner ot the back portion having a rectangular lront door iittcd in its front face with a correspondinglyshaped glass panel.

Another minor feature resides in forming the upper squared cabinet portion of the drawer-holding pedestal with a plurality of interior rectangular compartments or pigeonholes, a horizontal iiat shelf extending from the lower tier of such compartments or pigeonholes to the front opening and with a flat forwardly-declining top board.

In the drawings, Figure 1 is a perspective view ot a desk embodying the herein-described design, showing the two roll-curtains thrown open. Fig. 2 is a similar view of the desk closed.

Referring to the accompanying drawings, the numeral 1 designates the main latrectangular table of the desk supportinga cabinettop havin g opposite quadrantal end pieces 2, a roll-curtain 3, connecting the curved edges of said end pieces, and an upright back portion formed with a pluralityT of pigeon-holes 4, and a compartment in one upper 'corner having a rectangular front door 5, iitted in its front face with a correspondingly-shaped glass panel G. Certain of the pigeonholes 4L are arranged in vertical columns extending downward to the upper surface of the table 1 and inclosing a squared open space 7, in the upper corners of which space are arranged angular drawers S of a somewhat triangular form.

At one end of the main table 1 is arranged a drawer-holding pedestal 9, receiving a plurality of rectangular drawers l and formed at its upper end with a squared cabinet portion 11. The squared cabinet portion' 11 of the pedestal 9 extends the Afullheight and lies at one side of one of said quadrantal end pieces 2 and is provided with a iiat forwardlydeclining top board 12. The squared cabinet portion 11 is provided witha rectangular front opening 13, a plurality of interior rectangular compartments or pigeonholes 14, and a horizontal flat shelf 15, extending from the lower tier of compartments or pigeonholes 1i to the front opening 13. A vertically-disposed roll-curtain 1G lies within the front opening of the cabinet 11 and connects the vertical side edges of such opening.
