This exceptional 18th Century English Renaissance Secretary Bookcase displays wonderful rural craftsmanship from the crown to the base!  Shelves are held in place by shimmed fully mortised joinery, with fluting on the crown above overlooking the three open shelves below.  Underneath the shelves is a magnificently intricate slant-front desk that drops down to reveal a spacious work surface and cubby holes inside, while three finely carved drawers below that afford copious amounts of convenient storage!
