Look at what I found on the Online Galleries website!
Dating from around 1835 during the William IV period this delightful secretaire bookcase is made from mahogany. A tapered cornice sits over two astragal glazed doors which have a brass clash mould and key with working lock. The interior of the display contains three adjustable shelves. The lower section has a rectangular moulded top above a deep secretaire drawer which contains seven maple fronted drawers, several pigeon holes and a green baize writing surface. At the base can be found a cupboard with beautifully figured doors, again with a working lock. The interior contains a single adjustable shelf. The whole piece is heavily influenced by the Gillows style, especially so with the design of the lobed feet on which it stands. It also displays the charm and character of a true antique with minor old repairs none of which detract from it being a very beautiful piece of furniture. It splits into two sections for ease of removal and the mahogany is a wonderful warm medium shade with a striking grain, good patina, is in very good condition and has been beautifully cleaned using a traditional form of wax finishing.
