French Early 19th Century Transitional Drop Front Desk

$4,650

About

This amazing walnut desk has a slanted front that drops to reveal an interior writing surface and storage. A single key works the lock to open the top and once opened, the writing surface is lined with tooled, green leather. The interior is outfitted with four drawers, three cubbies and a couple hidden compartments. The lower portion of the secretary has two small top drawers and a large, bottom drawer. Each drawer is outfitted with drop ring pulls. Two escutcheon plates are placed down the center creating symmetry but do not have locks. A uniquely shaped skirt wraps around the three exposed sides of the desk. The whole is raised on square, tapering legs with shaped feet. Open Dimensions: 24-¾”H (to writing surface) x 38-?”D and floor to desk top is 24”H. C. 1800.
