A superb antique French Parisian secrétaire of high quality and richly inlaid in woods of rosewood, burl, mahogany, ebonized wood and mother of pearl. It is nicely decorated with gilded bronze and brass. The marble top has stains as shown. There are five external drawers and two keys, (the top and second drawer are not locking). The interior has two small drawers and a shelf (which has some bubbling). There is brass trim missing in two areas of the second drawer and one area of the third drawer and brass inlay missing from he left side and partly missing from the right side. There is a crack in the fall front as shown and a chain has been added to the inside fall front at some stage. The small drawers open partly due to the chain. Please use the photos as part of the description. We try to mention everything we can see. This is a beautiful old piece and for its age will still hold pride of place and command attention in any room. We have priced this way below its real value.
