This fine, sophisticated and well proportioned antique English mahogany secretaire bookcase/ china cabinet is remarkable for having survived in its original state including all swan neck handles and locks.

Ca. 1760.

The bold detachable swan neck pediment carved with ‘Gothic’ open fretwork, spiral rosettes and a dentil cornice.

The pediment is centred by a small platform below which is a fluted panel. The bookcase/ china cabinet section with two, thirteen pane, glazed doors with three original adjustable shelves with applied beadings for the display of china.

The base with a pull out writing section fitted with small drawers, two of which have secret releases.

These secret drawers are faced with blind fret ‘Gothic’ tracery and centered by a carved shaped arch.

The base with three cockbeaded drawers and raised on bracket feet which are faced with blind fret.

Superb quality, colour and patination, well figured throughout with mahogany drawer linings, always a confirmation of quality.
