This absolute jewel of a secretary desk was beautifully crafted about 1900 with inlaid marquetry of precious woods and mother of pearl. Original bronze pulls, the shaped and beveled mirror plus columns with Corinthian capitals are exquisite on this American made furniture. Fine detailing and the concave front are delightful.
The rich deep finish is in extremely fine condition on curly birch with a mahogany stain and a few shrinkage separations from age for antique character.
Interiors are genuine birdseye or curly maple. The drop front lock doesn't work well, so the key is just a handle to open.
Measurements of this historic desk are 27" wide, 19" deep, 66" tall and the desktop is 27" high when open.
