      Tolkien donated the desk to a charity auction in the late 1960s. The buyer in turn deeded it to the Wade Center. It's sitting in their museum section along with C.S. Lewis's breakfast table. It's small, beaten-up, not impressive looking, but it does have this pedigree, and a letter by Tolkien (under glass on the desk, IIRC) testifying to his use of it and stating the donation.
