Bay Colony Antiques is extremely proud to bring to market this fantastic 19th century antique Federal period Tiger Maple New Hampshire Secretary Desk. We absolutely love ladies secretary desks in this form and at any time you can expect us to have a few better-best examples with the only better ones out there being Seymour masterpieces that are locked away in museums & private collections. This desk is crafted from the absolute best grade of Tiger Maple with a cross banded mahogany border that creates a nice visual effect. The desk is heavily inlaid and retains all of it’s original hardware aside from the lock on the upper doors. The upper doors have embossed floral brass pulls and the lower drawers have their original brass pulls with a really sweet concentric beaded design. The interior has 4 document holes and a total of 8 drawers with vibrant mahogany faces. The desk measures 41 1/4” wide x 19 1/8” deep x 53 1/4” tall. The writing surface measures 40 1/2” wide x 7 1/2” deep with a surface height of 31”.
