About

Put a sophisticated spin on your study or office with this elegant antique slant front desk, or "commode scriban". Carved in Bordeaux, France circa 1760, the "secretaire a abattants" is both stylish and functional. The writing desk is crafted from solid cheery wood and features four bow drawers across the front, embellished with bronze hardware. The top folds down and reveals a large leather writing surface with a theater of 12 small drawers, including a small tabernacle door in the center and a secret sliding drawer underneath. The fruitwood cabinet has a skillfully carved and scalloped apron and scroll feet at the bottom. Flaunting beautiful lines, a rich patina, and complete functionality, this scriban secretary is in excellent condition and has all the original keys. Measures: 50" W x 26" D x 43" H.
