Description:
This is a charming period Louis XVI Secretaire a Abattant or drop front secretary that dates to c. 1780-90. The secretaire is in very good condition considering its age--230 years-- and use. The secretaireis very sturdy and was crafted of walnut, oak and pine and retains its original hardware and locks, one original key is available. The secretaire is neoclassical in form and features 3/4 fluted columns to its front corners and slender toupie feet. The interior is composed of 6 small drawers with a center open section below two shelves. The writing surface leather is an old restoration. The doors of the bottom section open to a single shelf. The escutcheons, although antique, are replacements. There is expected old minor restorations, worming (not active/dead) and shrinkage, normal for a piece of this age. The front edge of the drop front has some minor wrapping due to shrinkage. Please contact me for more information, photos and retail/trade pricing. All inquiries are welcome--thanks for visiting.
