Dated 1819, superb George III figured mahogany secretaire bookcase.
Impressed with the date 1819 under the base, this is a stunning original George III figured mahogany secretaire bookcase, from a large country home in Sussex England, where antiques were collected by the family for generations.
Wonderful well matched figured veneers to the base contain two drawers beneath the top deep third drawer, which is a drop front secretaire unit, opening to reveal a very well fitted figured interior comprising 11 drawers (including one secret drawer, and one double fronted drawer) with original brass pulls, and 9 pigeon holes having shaped friezes, and a black and gilt re-leathered writing space.
Note also that the very finely figured matching veneers carry through to all the inner fittings, which would only be found on the best pieces of the period.
Many such secretaires are marriages, in that the top and bottom were joined together, when the original pieces were separated over time. However, in this case, both pieces of this secretaire are original to each other.
The top glazed unit has beautifully shaped astragal glass doors, with original glass, enclosing 3 fully adjustable shelves, and includes the original key.
Size-43 inches wide by 85.75 inches high by 21 inches deep.
A lovely and useful piece to be used as a writing or laptop computer desk with storage, with a bookcase/display cabinet above.
The whole stands on original splay feet with shaped apron, and is completed by lovely cast brass ring pulls.
A wonderful original and useful piece, with excellent colour, patination, and in very good condition.
