Dating from around 1705, this very special piece of finely crafted furniture is an antique walnut secretaire in the Queen Anne style.

This very early 18th Century Queen Anne antique walnut secretaire chest is sure to fill you with admiration when you consider its age and the skill and craftsmanship that have gone into its making. Craftsmanship of this quality is rare especially when you consider that it was all made by hand. It is crafted from beautiful burr walnut which has been fashioned to bring out the very best colour and patina of this fine wood. The distinct contrasts in the wood colour are combined to create a unique effect.

There is a secret cushion moulded drawer in the frieze and the fall front drops down to reveal a leather writing surface that can be adjusted to make an angled writing slope. Once opened, the interior of this antique walnut secretaire reveals a fascinating interior comprising ten small drawers and a cupboard. More storage is available inside the cupboard with four more drawers.

This amount of storage is sure to please even the most avid stationery collector. And there’s more. This antique walnut secretaire chest also has three sets of pigeon holes above the drawers and these slide out to reveal yet another secret drawer and as if that’s not enough, there is yet another secret drawer inside the secretaire portion of this chest.

The base of the chest comprises four further drawers, two full width and two half-width with the drawers having drop and bat shaped brass handles.

The antique walnut secretaire is outlined throughout with decorative herringbone stringing. The whole piece stands on bun feet which are typical of the Queen Anne period.
