A stunning Victorian Secretaire in Cuban flame grain Mahogany.

We are delighted to bring to you this excellent condition Victorian French (circa 1880) Secretaire Bureau in Cuban Mahogany which is completely original and ideal for any period property. This Extraordinary Bureau is in a fantastic original condition featuring stunning wild flame grain Mahogany with flame-grained veneered turned decorative support columns finishing to rounded plinth incorporating its bun feet.

This stunning item features a large full width veneered drawer underneath the polished solid mahogany top and features a solid dovetailed oak construction. This discreet Bureau is an ideal and useful desk with its double action locked lid which folds down (Abattant) to reveal a green tooled leather writing surface, a large shelf and 6 drawers + 2 secret valuable drawers which are opened via secret auxiliary latches (we will tell the buyer how to operate). Underneath the desk lid are 2 lockable doors which reveals 3 oak lined drawers with mahogany fronts and brass ring handles making this ideal for storage.

This French Secretaire has been sympathetically restored and carefully waxed by us, maintaining original patina, signs of age and has a stunning faded rich mahogany colour from its age.

Please note;

This Secretaire is in very good condition for its age but does have signs of wear and tear, however, we feel that's part of its charm and character with it being antique. This Secretaire has had some minor repairs in the past however everything works as it should and nothing is missing. The item is supplied with 1 original key. Please also take into consideration that this item is very heavy (Around 70kg) and large (sizes below photographs).

  • Victorian Table

    I bought a restored Victorian table from here. When it arrived, it was wrapped incredibly well in bubble wrap, and had obviously been recently polished. It was immaculate. Friendly service, and a good price. Would definitely use again.
