Being offered for sale is this Unusual American Empire Flamed Mahogany Secretary Desk with Curio Sides and Mirror circa 1840's. We believe this piece to possibly be the work of Thomas Brooks but have not found a makers mark. This grand secretary / desk appears to have its old wavy glass on the curio sides and there is a key but it only works the bottom doors.
The green felt on the writing surface and the mirror have been replaced at some point in time. There are several hidden compartments in the desk area (see pictures) and the cabinet at the base opens to reveal pull out drawers. This desk features period dove-tailed joinery and chamfered boards on the back. The only apologies we can find is some small veneer chips here and there (very common is pieces of this age) and some old repairs to the veneer on the crest at the top (see pictures) which are very nicely done. Please enlarge and view all pictures as a part of the description.A grand, regal secretary desk that has gracefully withstood the test of time and is ready to take its place in your home to be used and admired for many more years to come. 13 1/2 inches deep at top portion. 24 inches deep at base portion. Height to the top of the base is 39 1/2 inches.
