18th Century George III Period Mahogany Breakfront Secretary Bookcase



18th century George III period mahogany breakfront bookcase with a secretaire or secretary drawer in the centre. The desk drawer is surprisingly useful in a modern home as laptops and stationery can be accessed easily and quickly hidden away when not in use. This bookcase is made of especially dense grained mahogany which is a good deep color and extremely heavy and solid. It is really well made with good drawer action, precise dovetails and well constructed doors. English, circa 1800 JMM 243 Measures: 86" high 78" wide 24" deep.
