The birch glows with life in this remarkable secretary also known as a bureau. The upper cabinet interior holds the petite drawers and cubbies typical of a secretary, while the central square door has hand-carved flourishes adding to the refined elegance of this desk. The large, lower 3 drawers open using a key as a "pull," which was traditional for the era.
