The fall front desk surface is covered with gold tooled leather. Please note the solid brass ormolu decoration.

Oak Bureau Desk Secretaire Antique France Dutch

An antique desk with a folding top in the Dutch style, Made in Northern Europe in the mid 1800’s, this useful piece of furniture is entirely practical in large or more modest accomodation, offering a large ready to use cleared desk with paperwork drawers in the upper compartment. Below three further huge drawers for your clothes, or whatever you wish. The covert surprise, the secret compartment hidden in the writing top. Please don’t tell any one!

So what’s the bad news? In 1870 someone left a wine glass brimming with burgundy on the top, and there is a ring mark from the foot. Remove it if you wish.
