A classic secretary desk has a cylinder or "barrel" roll top plus a bookcase above, and dates from the late Victorian or Eastlake period about 1870.
Solid walnut with intricate burl panels, the original finish is very well preserved with warm antique patina and was revarnished long ago. There is significant wear on the right side of the bookcase, see photos.
Incised "spoon" carving and geometric moldings are authentic. Original door locks and keys still work on this American made furniture. The bookcase has original wavy glass and adjustable shelves. Embossed hardware is original, the drawer has round "pin and cove" dovetail joints.
The interior of the desk has a pull out saddle leather writing surface and golden curly or "birdseye" maple, one cubby hole on the right has a loss as shown.
Two separate pieces for easier moving, dimensions are 43 1/2" wide, 23" deep, 7' 1 1 /2" tall and the desktop is 30" high.
