About

A fine 18th century George III English bureau bookcase secretary in solid West Indies/ Cuban mahogany. The bonnet features a swan neck, broken-scroll pediment with carved rosettes and a center finial. Upper solid door panels are raised and interior shelves are adjustable. Sitting up on bracket feet with a two over two configuration of drawers, the slant front opens to a simple oak secretary appointed with drawers and open slots for storage. Chippendale brasses are old and have been on the secretary for many years as evidenced by the build up of brass polish on the corners of the plates. Oak is the secondary wood. Measures: 38 1/2" wide x 21" deep x 90” high; 34 1/2" deep with secretary open; 29 1/2” high from the floor to work surface.
