Regency Mahogany Secretaire Bureau Bookcase c.1830.

Superb Regency era mahogany secretaire bureau bookcase c.1830. Glazed bookcase top with three shelves (12″ depth) which can be positioned as required by sliding them into the grooves on the sides. Over a secretaire bureau base, drawer front folding open to make a writing desk with a fitted interior of pigeon holes and six small stationery drawers. With a large two door cupboard below fitted with a single shelf, also adjustable. A very good looking example of the form with particularly good flame mahogany veneers across the front, note the symmetrically arranged door panels. Unusual moulded cornice, ogee arched glazing bars with reeded detail, carved quarter rosettes to the corners of the drawer and door panels, applied brass door trim and shaped apron and feet continued on the sides. Solid mahogany groundwork to the doors and solid mahogany sides to both top and bottom sections. Original brass catches and stays to the folding drawer front, original hinges and locks. Fabulous original colour and excellent condition, cleaned and polished in our workshops. Key supplied for the bookcase and cupboard doors.
