In Response To: Rolltop desk drawers won't open (Ann Padover)

You probably have one with mechanical locks that are activiated by closeing the rooltop. Look inside the kneehole under the pedestal and wee if you can see a flat steel operating rod, lifting this should free the drawers in that pedestal. If you can get to them from the bottom take the top of the desk off many only sit on the writing surface eith dowels for registration, but some will have screws that can be rmove under the outer edge of the writing surface.
