Antique Eastlake Light Walnut Bureau Bookcase, Secretary, Desk C.1880
Antique American Eastlake bureau bookcase made from solid walnut and dating back to c.1880.
This piece is absolutely stunning. It has all the attributes of the Eastlake style with it's geometric lines and modest curves yet the light walnut and paneling give it a warm country look which would work well with almost any decor.
The base consists of one drawer over 2 smaller drawers and a small storage cabinet with beautiful decorative brass handles and working locks with key.
The upper section consists of a panel back bookcase with adjustable shelves and double glass doors with a working lock and key. The same key works in the lock of the drop down slant top desk which opens to reveal a black leather top writing table and numerous cubbies and small drawers.
This gorgeous piece has developed a wonderful aged patina with burled wood to the front of the drawers. It is extremely heavy and in solid, sturdy, functional condition.
As you can imagine, a piece of this age and function has seen a lot and this is evident in the wear and numerous old repairs and flaws throughout. Old nails and wooden pegs and dowels have been used for most of them which, in my opinion, only add even more character and charm to this fabulous old desk. All of this is shown in the pictures and is reflected in the price. What I wouldn't give to know the life and history of this piece....
This truly is a one of a kind piece which is clean and sturdy and fully functional with an abundance of character and charm which only a lifetime or two can create.
Dimensions: width at top 47", depth 21 1/2", depth with desk open 27 1/4", desk top height 33", total height 88 1/2".
