George III Secretaire Breakfront Bookcase

We believe no piece of furniture bears witness to a refined presence in a home as a formal bookcase does. Looking at this copy of a fine George III mahogany secretaire breakfront bookcase, you may agree. It is impressive not only in size, but also for the splendid veneer work and carved details, such as the arches and dentil moldings along the crown.

The bookcase section is fitted throughout with shelves that are adjustable on traditional trammels. The whole piece is enclosed by doors which have astragal glazing bars with individually cut panes and are exquisitely decorated with mahogany veneers.

The projecting lower part is fitted with a secretaire drawer which incorporates a stepped satinwood interior with drawers lined in cedarwood and with simulated ivory knobs. The writing surface is leather lined and there are two secret drawers behind leather bookbindings. The center storage section is flanked by banks of drawers.

This bookcase is meant to say you love literature and fine furniture. It manifests a passion for others to note, value, and emulate.
