18th Century Dutch Neoclassical Apothecary Cabinet ~ Secretary was obviously a product of sublimely talented artisans, indeed!  Created with a stately elegance inspired by ancient Greek architects, it features a crown with facing pitched moldings flanking a center pediment that is a design copied by the early Federal style furniture crafters in the then-young country of the USA.  A bold cornice provides a platform for the crown moldings, and appears over the generously sized upper cabinet, whose two large, tailored doors open to reveal adjustable shelf storage above, and a tambour cabinet below that opens to reveal multiple cubby holes, ideal for the pharmacist's purposes.  Below appear no less than 12 small drawers, also perfectly designed for use by a pharmacist or doctor, each with its own brass nobs, ring pulls and key guards.  Between the two tiers is a full width drawer that opens to reveal a drop-front facade which creates a work surface, as well as three interior drawers.  The functionality of this piece cannot be understated, as its capability for storage and organization is virtually unequaled.  Add to that the timeless elegance of the overall design, and you have the makings of an instant family heirloom!
