Gustavian Secretary with Carved Detail

$6,400.

Period Gustavian secretary, Sweden circa 1790, in two parts.  The upper section retains its original cornice with reeded detail at the corners over inset quarter-round columns.  Below a reeded frieze are two doors with recessed panels and notched moldings, and below that is a single wide drawer.  The interior has three fixed shelves.

The lower section has a fitted interior with twelve drawers of varying sizes, all with notched detail, behind a slant front.  Below that are four drawers, all on a shaped bracket base.  Three of the interior drawers have had their bottoms replaced at some time in the past.

The original finish has a great patina with the wear you would expect to find on a piece of this age.
