Here is a stunning antique drop front secretary desk that was made in the late 1700s. It has a timeless look with period hardware and stunning veneer detail. The drop front desk section folds down and is supported by two pull-out support beams. The base has four spacious drawers, which open and close smoothly. The very top of the desk is warped from age. There is some general veneer damage throughout, consistent with age, including some significant damage on the top back left corner. The interior of the desk features several smaller drawers for stationary and other storage.
