19th Century English Georgian Secretary ~ Bookcase is a magnificent example of the genre, with elaborately carved facing arches and latticework creating a regal crown atop the glazed upper tier.  Arched muntions separate the hand-rolled glass panes, allowing one to display books, keepsakes, or collectibles above.  The lower tier consists of five drawers with cast brass pulls and above, a slant-front drop-down desk surface that was carved to perfection, and opens to reveal a spacious work surface with cubby holes and drawers inside.  Ingeniously, the desktop supports automatically cam out to provide support.  A master work of the cabinetmaker's art!

Circa 1880s
