Description

This secretary employs classic Gothic arches in its upper doors, which are generally in-filled from behind with either fabric or left open as a bookcase, given the full shelving. The upper pediment retains its original open scrolled fretwork above a beautifully matched crotch grain mahogany cornice. This secretary has a long open top drawer which supports a hinged lid below two small upper drawers with large pressed glass period knobs. The sides are solid, one-piece boards with characteristic rounded edges . The bottom doors are paneled with molding also characteristic of this period. All is supported by beautifully shaped bracket feet with a scrolled apron.  This secretary is in pristine condition and retains a beautiful amber glow.

Height: 89 1/4 in.  Case Width: 39 in. Overall Width: 41 1/2 in. Depth: 19 1/2 in.
