Secretaire bureau with bun feet
A lovely proportioned and exceptionally well made tall boy secretaire bureau with large bun feet. Stunningly, beautiful use of burr walnut book matching veneer to a heavy oak carcass meaning no expense has been spared in the creation of this wonderful honest French Louis Philippe piece (c1830-1848). The central writing slope drops down on sturdy brass hinges to reveal pockets and drawers all equally veneered in burr walnut. Drawers and desk are lockable with a key. The top supports a lovely marble of reds, oranges and light browns.
