circa: 2000 width: 48 height: 93 length: 22 This burl walnut secretary bookcase, also known as a bureau desk, is handmade in England as a Georgian Period reproduction. Every aspect of this English-made secretary desk, from the techniques used to the materials themselves, is of the absolute highest quality. The burl walnut, for instance, is treated to an elaborate finishing process that includes hand-distressing and waxing, while a variety of optional inlays as well as several selections of leather desk inlays provide an elegant contrast with the walnut. With three large exterior drawers (with hand-cut dovetails), two fully adjustable shelves, and a variety of desk compartments and drawers, this secretary also offers plenty of storage space. The bookcase and desk sections lock with an accompanying set of keys, while the secretary as a whole rests on sturdy shaped bracket feet.
