Antique Mahogany Secretaire/Writing Desk

Now this really is a beautiful piece of antique furniture! The front opens (there's a small brass button at each side of the "drawer" which, when pressed, flips down the front of the "drawer" creating a writing slope). When the front is flipped down, there is the original green baize to rest upon when writing or using a laptop. There is also storage including pigeon holes and drawers, although a small drawer is missing. The top gallery open shelf section does detach from the bottom, making it easier to transport. It has some beautiful moulding/carving to the top of the gallery/shelves. The bottom is a double door cupboard with a shelf in it. Unfortunately, somewhere along the line, the original handle/knob has disappeared and a modern white one has been put on which will need changing. There is some damage (as photographed) such as some old chips around the key hole, some burn? marks (probably where a previous owner has used candles) and an odd mark here and there as you'd expect from an genuine antique like this. Should really be viewed in person to appreciate how lovely this piece is! W: 43" (109cm); D: 20 1/2" (52cm); H: 61 1/2" (156cm); THIS ITEM CAN BE SENT OUT UK WIDE VIA COURIER OR COLLECTED/VIEWED IN PERSON IN OUR SHOP IN THE PIECE HALL.
