18th Century George II Mahogany Secretary Bookcase

$45,00020% Off


A magnificent English 18th century Chippendale secretary bookcase of exceptional detail. The composition is marked by a robustness and architectural quality that is complimented by its superb timber. The top of the piece is crowned by a swan necked broken pediment with a particularly pronounced vertical proportion. Rosettes and acanthus swags extend on either side of foliate crest and central carved cartouche. The medallion exhibits a basket of tulip flowers. The case below is enclosed by a pair of stunningly figured mahogany paneled doors which open to series of original adjustable shelves and a number of valanced pigeonholes. The lower case is outfitted with a sloping lid revealing a desktop with more drawers and pigeonholes and two half drawers flanked by lopers. Three graduated drawers with cockbeaded edges fill the case. The secretary rests on original bracket ogee feet with a period set of brasses. A dramatic and handsome bureau in very fine original condition, England, circa 1760.
