Vintage four drawer serpentine front Chippendale ball and claw Governor Winthrop secretary bookcase made by the Maddox Furniture Company dating from the 1940's. It has a heavy crown molded broken arch top with flame finial in the center, lattice work on the doors, which is a thick mahogany grill instead of the typical flat wood. It has breadboard ends on the writing lid, that when opened exposes a wonderful multi-drawer cubby hole interior with a carved door in the center and two cleverly disguised hidden compartments behind half turned pillars.

It has four serpentine drawers in the base, which are all dovetailed and they retain the original Chippendale hardware. It is all finished off with a multiple molded applied bracket base, ending in a ball and claw foot. The overall size of the desk 36" wide x 21" deep x 84high to top of the flame finials. The two glass doors on top open to expose a dual shelf interior with inside dimensions of 32" wide x 9" deep x 29" high with shelves at a fixed height of 10.5" and 19 high.

It is a beautiful desk - it comes with a key, the locks work. As the slanted surface is moved down the support brackets extend. When fully horizontal, you have a stable surface with almost no play.
