This stately tall secretary is an elegant and classic statement piece. The entire secretary has been given a black painted finish, which has been gently rubbed off along edges to reveal an accent layer of burnt red underneath, adding both dimension and character to this lovely bureau. The open lattice work of the crown is highlighted with an applied carved floral garland for a light romantic touch. Central to the 3 doors is a carved diamond motif, a traditional syle element of the era. The secretary is built in 3 sections: the lower has 4 long drawers whiich open using a key as a "pull." The middle section is the traditional desk, the many cubbies and petite drawers are revealed when the desk work surface rests on the 2 sturdy support arms. The upper section has 3 cabinet doors, the central cabinet has a traditional spoon rack and lower drawer.
