BURLED WALNUT DESK

Gorgeous high style Rococo Victorian walnut slant lid secretary. The top has an
interesting curved shape with an ornate carving in the middle. The top section
features an original mirror with a lovely shaped carved border and very
attractive “glitter” from diamond dusting of the original silvering. The top
interior has three original shelves. The cut corners have detailed carvings,
including a rose, on the top and base. There are two small drawers on either
side of the base with a larger drawer in the middle. The drawer interiors along
with the interior of the top are ALL made out of a vibrant birdseye maple. This
stunning feature is a testament to the extra care and craftsmanship the cabinet
maker took in making this piece. We had a new leather surface put on the the
pullout writing tablet. The desk is supported by four graceful carved cabriole
legs. We have a key that works the top door lock and another key can also be
used to help open the other five drawers. A magnificent fine quality desk that
shows its’ beauty both open and closed!
