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 bun feet.
The main chest consists of a secretaire drawer over three graduated drawers.
The drawers are fitted with attractive turned handles. All the drawers are fitted with locks (a key is supplied for the top 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 drawers and pigeon holes. The drop flap has an attractive plum leather writing surface.
There is a letter with the chest showing some of its history, it is dated to 1985 and shows how the chest was exported to Australia before being brought back by a previous owner.
The chest of drawers has an overall height of 53" (135cm), a width of 49.5" (126cm) and a depth of 23" (59cm).
This lovely large antique Victorian mahogany secretaire remains in very good solid condition with only 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 are a few repairs to the veneers, primarily around the top rail and there is a little bubbling to the veneer around the secretaire hinges.
This remains a very stylish and elegant antique Victorian secretaire chest that will continue to provide good service for many years to come.
