A walnut and burl cylinder roll top secretary desk with bookcase dates from the late Victorian or Eastlake period in the 1880's.

Doors have original wavy glass and shelves that adjust on wooden supports. The roll top has a matched burl panel and glides smoothly up and down. The locking door has a raised panel, there are small shrinkage separations from age, see photos. For easier moving, the bookcase section is removable.
