Antique German Mahogany Biedermeier Secretary Desk

About

Outstanding early 19th century German Biedermeier secretary desk, circa 1830, with exceptional book matched mahogany drawer and desk front. The wood grain appears to glow from within with a shellac finish that brings the wood to life. The interior architecture is fitted with a variety of inlaid mahogany drawers, a mirrored cabinet door and secret compartments. The drop front is weighted and opens and closes with ease. The slight bow, visible in the photos, does not affect the look or the operation of the desk top. Please take a moment to enlarge the photos and examine the extraordinary details and craftsmanship up close.
