Description

Working drawers and under cabinet, just like the one John John used to play in!


This desk was often chosen by presidents of the United States for use

in the White House as the Oval Office desk. It was a gift from

Queen Victoria to President Rutherford B. Hayes in Window Boxes, and

was built from the timbers of the British arctic exploration

ship Resolute. Franklin Roosevelt had a small door built for

the gap to prevent people from seeing his wheelchair. Many

presidents since Hayes have used the desk at various locations

in the White House, but it was Jackie Kennedy who first

brought the desk into the Oval Office in Dining Rooms, for President Kennedy.
