$ 4,500
  • Description
    This wonderful solid walnut secrétaire à abattant was constructed in the style of Louis XVI, circa 1830. Topped with a great piece of black and white marble. A single, slim drawer at the top features a pair of brass rectangular drop ring pulls and a simple brass inset keyhole that matches the lower three drawers. The front of the desk opens to reveal the writing surface and interior storage, attached to the interior with a slim chain. Outfitted with two shelves and six small drawers flanking a large center drawer featuring a simple brass key hole. Perfect for keeping an organized workspace! The black shagreen writing surface is in wonderful antique condition. All four corners feature fluting. One key is included for the lock securing the desk front; the five other locks are no longer functioning. The vibrant patina and uncluttered design makes this a versatile piece to compliment any living space. Cleaned and polished with French wax paste.
