A superb antique French walnut Louis Philippe style secretaire abattant crated from walnut with a white marble top and beautifully fitted interior. This dates to approx 1850. There are three secret drawers, one underneath the marble top and two inside the top interior. The original key is in place for the desk top and the lock works but is just not catching. The top stays closed without locking. The marble top has some stains as shown and there is an area of missing veneer on the back right leg which is not overly noticeable. This is all mentioned for accuracy reasons. The brass drop front chain would have been added as the old mechanisms wear out. The drop front has a leather writing area. A beautiful French antique piece.
SIZE approx: 145cm high x 97.5cm wide at top x 85cm wide at mid 45cm deep x 39cm deep at mid - Writing area 74cm wide x 57cm deep
