About

This two part Rococo secretary dates to the late 18th century, and is a transitional piece with a top cornice of Rococo design and feet that reflect the Gustavian Style. The early original hardware features escutcheons topped with a crown and cross and drawer pulls with a fleur de lis motif. The exterior is a soft green with touches of blue and the interior, with many interesting drawers, is in old white paint.
