Chippendale Secretary/Desk

$9,500

About the Item

George III period mahogany Chinese Chippendale secretary bookcase, England, circa 1790. The original ogee bracket feet and the broken arch pediment top are finely carved in the Chinese taste which had reached a peek thanks to Thomas Chippendale. When you open the slant lid you reveal the old green leather writing surface and multiple drawers and compartments. In front of the 15 pane glass doors are two candle slides that would provide light. It came from the Newport Preservation Society.
