This is by far one of my favorite pieces in the store right now! Antique Early 19th-century maple secretary writing desk. This desk consists of 2 pieces with the top fitting snugly onto the base. The front falls down with 2 wooden support beams that pull out from above the single drawer. All original brass hardware. Unfortunately, I do not have the key to lock the desk. The dovetails are all hand cut with exposed dovetails to the top and front of the desk. There are also exposed wooden square-headed nails. The back of the desk shows that it was hand planed. There are so many fantastic antique details to this desk that it's almost impossible to mention them all.

The desk measures 39" high by 33" wide by 19" deep. It is in very good antique condition especially considering its age. Just like any antique piece of furniture, there are dings and scratches which all show the amazing history of the piece. Please make sure to look through the provided photos and let me know if you have any questions.
