CHINOISERIE SECRETARY DESK H 97" W 44" D 27"

An English influence Chinoiserie drop front secretary desk. Having black crackled lacquer with parcel gilt designs depicting mountainous scenes and pagodas. With Shao engraved, flared brass escutcheons and a central lock with a key. Having a serpentine front with two visible drawers opening to a flip down desk supported by two slides and multiple interior drawers adorned with engraved brass pulls. Having a scalloped skirt descending to slipper feet.


Condition:
Good used condition. On the top cabinets, one handle is missing, and the other handle is missing the decorative plate backing it (visible in photos). The opened desk shows light scratches near the back where it is hinged, and there is an approx. 6" x 1/4" horizontal scratch to the center of the opened desk (half of this scratch is easily noticeable, and the other half is faint). This secretary desk shows some wear to the edges from normal use, as well as wear to the feet. There is an approx. 1 1/2" hole at the back, likely drilled for computer wires. This hole is at the back of the center cabinet that is on the interior of the desk. PLEASE NOTE: This piece has a key, but the key is broken, and we are unable to open the top cabinets.
