Secretaire cabinet circa 1860


A beautifully preserved secretaire cabinet. The detachable pediment with an ormolu bust and finials over cupboard doors, opening to a shelved interior over twin drawers. The projecting lower section is fitted with a concealed pull-out writing surface. The whole cabinet exudes the finest quality, with the original ormolu mounts and Birdseye maple cupboard and drawer linings, complete with the original keys. Many of these cabinets have been subject to damp and neglect over the years. This rare specimen is completely original, with no losses or additions, lifting veneers or additions. Ht 167, W 83, D 53 cms.
