Late 19th Century Lectern / High Desk, Mahogany Shellac Polished

About

An antique late 19th century lectern made of mahogany and burl veneer. Standing on 4 high turned legs with 3 drawers and a beveled writing flap with leather. A very small secret door on the right side (see pictures), which was probably originally used for the storage of chalk pieces. Nice little detail is the inlay on the top drawer at the button (see picture). Standing desks were the usual office and writing furniture in the German Biedermeier period and the French Restoration period and were originally used exclusively by men. This piece of furniture has been restored and has been polished by hand with shellac (French polish). Dimensions: 120 cm high / 47.24 inch high, 84 cm wide / 33.07 inch wide, 65 cm deep / 25.59 inch deep.
