SOLD Antique Period Empire Flame Mahogany Secretary Desk


Product Description

Dating from the 1840s-‘50s, in amazing original condition, this is a beautiful flame mahogany flip top empire secretary bookcase desk. Look at the flame mahogany that these cabinet makers used back before the Civil War, and it’s obvious that they were very talented. There is matched flame mahogany veneer across the hand-cut dovetail drawers and the flip down lid. It has the big, wide molded crown molded top, arched gallery center face with flame mahogany all over, and the individually paned doors with some of the original glass still in them, and the double shelf interior. There are two hand cut dovetail drawers underneath the glass doors, and it comes down into a base with a flip-top lid on which we have redone the felt with antique red. The three hand-cut dovetail drawers come down into a scrolled empire legged base. The glass has been replaced in two of the sections for sure, and maybe some other places. You can see some of the triangular points that holds the glass panes in. The cabinet is in great condition, with some wear marks on the sides, and they can be refinished easily. The overall size is 40 inches wide, 22 inches deep, 34 inches to the cabinet top, and 78 inches to the very top and comes apart in two sections. It’s finished in its original dark reddish stain, and there is a key, although we don’t guarantee it to work. It also has pullout supports for the lid. These desks are getting harder and harder to find. Please take a look around the rest of the site, and remember that we give a generous freight discount when you purchase multiple items. Call 1-207-314-9621 for details.  It will cost only $385 to have this desk shipped to your home, within our normal delivery area. We also ship to all points of Canada, but please email us to get an accurate quote for your specific location.
