I have an oak desk which I was told was made by the Boeing Company in the early 1920's. It is a simple design with a pull out drawer which has a lift top & ink well. The age is right, with dovetail joints, and a single shelve across the bottom. My question is how do I verify this the only marking is a stamped number.

A mansion in Colorado Springs, CO had a set of bedroom furniture that matched the one on display at the Museum of Flight in Seattle.  But that was over 40 years ago.

If you are near the Seattle area, check out the Museum of flight. When I was there I saw a Boeing dresser on display and they talked a little about Boeing making furniture during the tour. Boeing made furniture for a brief time to keep their workers employed during tough economic times.

I was reading about the furniture that Boeing built in 1918 and was wondering if anyone has any of them and if they have any pictures

I too found a Boeing oak desk. It has a little placard that says boeing and has a number on it. It's a full size desk and in great condition. The finish is bad so I am going to refinish it, but the wood is excellent. Have you found any more information on Boeing furniture, or how to value an item? racer@wwdb.org

I don't have a clue. Perhaps some of our readers will be able to steer you in the right direction. -Russell
