ANTIQUE HAND PAINTED SECRETAIRE BOOKCASE. This wonderful antique cabinet is a practical and elegant piece of furniture. Constructed of mahogany throughout it is a great example of handmade craftsmanship and dates to circa 1860s, Mid Victorian. It has been painted in Annie Sloan chalk paint Graphite' on the outside and'French Linen' in the inside top part. The Grey and Black combination create the most beautiful contrast and backdrop for displaying china, glassware, books, etc.
The paint finish has been rubbed with black and clear wax and distressed to really enhance the rustic quality and create a lovely aged and durable finish. With plenty of storage and arrangement of compartments below, glazed top, which has adjustable shelves.
The door's glass is original, which provides that gentle wavy reflection and the odd glass bubble. The top and base separate for transport. In very good antique condition.Please expect some dents, marks and scuffs due to its age. This is a solid, well built piece and there is nothing that doesn't sit right with the character and age of this beautiful, elegant display cabinet.
