Features include a beautiful ROSEWOOD case with luxuriously appointed detailed carvings on the arched framed decorated doors and the elaborate display above the doors that includes a bust of a historical literary figure. Wonderful details are also found on the canted corners of the top and base, on the scroll carvings along the base skirt panel, on the finely carved fruit and berries of the lower cabinet doors, and on the fine cartouche crest. The entire bookcase interior is lined with Birdseye Maple, including the three adjustable shelves with rosewood fronts. Behind the extraordinary cylinder desk cover is a fitted desk with seven satin wood faced drawers and a pull out adjustable felt covered writing surface. There are four recessed brass rings to pull out the writing surface and adjust the slant of the writing surface with the built in adjustable levels. The inside of the lower cabinet is also lined with Birdseye Maple including the shelf with a Rosewood front. This Exceptional Secretary is accompanied by a very fancy original key that fits the bookcase doors and the completely Birdseye Maple lined full drawer below the desk cylinder.
