This is a great old early Mahogany Secretary Desk. We did not find a label but based upon form and style we attribute it to J&J W Meeks of NYC, circa 1830 to 1840. It has been restored back to pristine condition, note photo of cracks that been repaired and filled. Flame grain figured mahogany veneer is prominent throughout this piece, it is truly beautiful. The drop down down door opens to reveal many compartments and drawers, (the lock has been replaced on this door) on the side of the large drawer are these carvings: LP No 17/1803. There is one full length drawer and 3 doors at the bottom, the center door is straight while the one on each side is curved., the locks on these 3 doors have been replaced with new ones and the outside backing has been replaced. Measures 49" wide by 28" deep. (measuring at deepest point at bottom leg) by 60" tall.
*The price we have on this desk is quite modest for piece of this caliber. Item ID:SB-009
