This delightful, small English empire secretary, circa 1820-40s, is done in mahogany with flame grain mahogany doors. A beveled cornice rests above a case of pale blue silk covered shelves, behind two glass doors with rounded end panels. Below it, the faux central drawer drops down to reveal a pigeonhole interior with small drawers. There are also two cupboard doors with brass trim that are flanked by reeded and leafage columns over substantial turned feet. Typical wear, as is always seen with pieces of age. In two parts. A very handsome piece and concise enough to fit into a smaller spot in your room.
H. 73″, W. 33″, D.17″.
$1300 for the glamour of the Empire.
