Mid-19th Century French Louis Philippe Carved Walnut Secretary Cabinet
This elegant, antique fruitwood “secretaire a abattant” was crafted in France circa 1840; the tall secretary with classical straight lines features a shaped top over a frieze drawer. The fall front opens and reveals a fully outfitted inside theater decorated with turned columns on the sides, six functioning drawers, and a wide open niche for books and letters. The writing surface is upholstered with a green leather top. The bottom has double doors with inside shelving for additional storage. The woman desk is in excellent condition and has a rich, walnut patina; it would make a useful addition to a small library or study, because it can be folded up quickly to create more space. Two original keys included.
