Offered for sale is a vintage mid 20th century custom handmade English Secretary bookcase, constructed from antique burred walnut woods, in the Georgian style with an arch-molded top and fall front desk. The bookcase exterior closes with double-paneled figured walnut doors that open to reveal an incredible fitted interior featuring drawers, shelves, letter slots, an arched niche, and hidden compartments. The fall front writing surface, which rests on slides when opened, is inset with tooled leather and opens to reveal cubbyholes, drawers, and more hidden compartments.

The secretary bureau contains four graduating full-length locking drawers. This outstanding piece is structurally sound with hand-cut dovetailing. It is in excellent condition with minor exceptions. Most old English pieces experience separation and cracking to the wood when exposed to dryer climates. You will often find vertical cracks in the sides of English case pieces brought to America, which has happened to the base of this piece on both sides. It could be filled in but we prefer to leave it as is for authenticity. It does not affect the structure of the piece nor its pleasing aesthetics. There are a few minor scratches but overall it is as stated.

The books and other items shown in the photos are not included in the sale of the secretary.

Size: 87” Height by 36” Width by 19” Depth.
