Above secretary drawer containing an arrangement of line-inlaid drawers with ivory pulls and baize-inlaid a rachetted writing slope, the bow-front base with an arrangement of drawers all lined, unusually, in maple above a shaped apron and graceful French feet.

It is unusual to find a secretary bookcase with bookcase section bowed to the same design as the base. Although in style of Seddon & Sons, this piece may have been made by one of the leading Northern or Scottish cabinet makers.
