18th Century Georgian Flame Mahogany Secretary Bookcase

About

Magnificent flame mahogany secretary. The cornice of the piece features fine dentils, gothic arches, and delicate blind fretwork. The upper two doors of paired veneer open to sets of original shelves with adjustable supports. The matchbook veneer desk covered with extraordinary cuts of mahogany opens to reveal a leather work surface and fine pigeonholes and document drawers. Of particular note the central door with fluted Roman Doric pilasters framing the door bearing an inlaid arch and six-pointed star. The bottom case has four graduated drawers with veneer fronts cut of the same flitch as the desk cover, with Regency lion ring brass pulls. The case rests on carved hairy paw feet of a later date. In total, a stately piece of work of the highest rank of its day. Britain possibly Irish, circa 1785.
