This beautiful and extremely functional secretary can serve as a convenient writing desk or elegant bedside surface. Hand-crafted from exotic imported mahogany "bookmatched" to create a stunning naturalistic pattern on the façade, this secretaire features a large drop-down desk surface with a pair of cabinets below, a departure from the more typical drawers. Half-barley twist molding extends from the finely shaped crown which also contains the drawer tier. Turned solid mahogany feet provide elegant support.
Circa 1850s.
