It is with great pleasure we offer for sale this extremely rare find; a large break fronted mahogany antique secretaire library bookcase dating from around 1830 in the Regency period. It is of superb quality constructed from the finest quality mahogany. It has a deep break fronted moulded cornice above four glazed doors which are framed by pilasters with tulip carved capitals. The doors have arched mouldings, key and working locks and each interior has four adjustable shelves.
The lower section has a break fronted moulded top above a deep central secretaire drawer with a fall front, still with the original brass mechanism, and Hobbs of London lock with key. The interior of the secretaire drawer has the original black tooled leather writing insert, several pigeon holes and small mahogany lined drawers with ebonised turned handles. Either side of the secreatire drawer can be found two beautifully figured concealed drawers which can only be accessed using secret bottons from within the secretaire drawer itself!
Below the drawers are four beautifully flamed mahogany doors, with arched mouldings, and working locks with key. The interior of the central cupboard has three mahogany lined drawers with original turned handles (one slightly chipped) and original blue lining paper. The outer two cupboards each have a single fixed shelf, and working lock with key. Again the doors are flanked by pilasters which are topped with tulip carved capitals.
This magnificent antique bookcase is of the finest quality and really is a rare find indeed. It stands on a break fronted moulded plinth, splits into three sections and is a medium shade of mahogany with a striking grain, good patina, is in very good condition and has been beautifully cleaned using a traditional form of wax finishing.
