Antique Country French Drop-Front Secretary is a marvel of stylish efficiency!  Taking up no more floor space that a medium-sized chest of drawers, it provides the same type of storage with two generous full-width drawers as well as an upper section that features a slant-front, drop down desk surface that when opened, reveals a cubby hole and drawers, supported by two pull-out oak staffs tipped with brass pulls.  The slant front and drawer fronts feature an arbalette contour and are carved with cherubs with stylized shell, floral and foliate motifs intertwined with sculpted molding detail.  The four cabriole legs feature carved shoulders and cloven hoof feet.
Circa early 1900s
