Attractive Large Antique Victorian Mahogany Secretaire Chest Of Four 4 Drawers



Item Number


Attractive large antique Victorian mahogany secretaire chest of drawers.
A lovely antique Victorian mahogany secretaire chest of drawers. We date this chest of drawers to the second half of the 19th century.
The chest sits on four shapely bracket feet.
The main chest consists of a secretaire drawer over three graduated drawers.
The drawers are fitted with attractive cast brass drop handles mounted on shapely embossed brass backplates. All the drawers are fitted with locks (a key is supplied for the secretaire drawer).
The secretaire drawer is fitted with a catch at either side. The front lowers to reveal the fitted interior, which features a bank of graduated small satinwood drawers at either side, flanking an arrangement of pigeon holes and central cupboard. It is fitted with a later added green baize insert on the writing surface. The central drawer has a secret drawer to the very top.
The chest of drawers has an overall height of 40.5" (103cm), a width of 48" (122cm) and a depth of 23" (59cm).
This lovely large antique Victorian mahogany secretaire remains in very good solid condition with only very minor surface markings commensurate with age and usage, including some indentations and light scratches to the finish on the top and side surfaces. There are also some minor age splits to the side panels, and some darker marks to the finish. There are a few small veneer chips and the drawer fronts are showing an amount of mellowing. Although period handles, they have been replaced at some point in the past. There is a little bit of wear to the cockbeading on one drawer.
This remains a very stylish and elegant antique Victorian secretaire chest that will continue to provide good service for many years to come.
