As per the photos, this is a fabulous Antique Blackwood Secretaire Desk with a Lead light Bookcase / Display Cabinet!
The blackwood timber is lovely and is in very good condition with the usual scuffs of antique furniture and no damage or missing pieces. It only had a quick dust (and can see plenty I missed!) before the photos were taken and a light polish will bring it up beautifully.
On the lhs there is a tall cupboard which has 2 leadlight glass doors. The top door opens to 2 shelves and behind the lower door there are 3 shelves (including the base). The shelves are all solid timber and very strong so can hold plenty of weight. The glass is all in very good condition with no chips, cracks etc.
On the lhs there is a display shelf at the top with a backboard extending around the lhs.
Directly below this is the secretaire desk. Just below the drop down desktop there is a second drawer and on either side of this are two pieces of timber that pull out to form supports for the desktop when it is lowered.
When lowered the cover forms the desktop and this extends back inside to form a large desk area inside the cupboard. This makes a great pouring area and bottles, strawers etc can be kept inside this area when it is closed. The desktop and base inside this area has quite a number of spots and marks as you can see. It could use a light sand and polish, or enjoy it with it's history 'character' ;-)
The desktop raises / lowers well.
The drawer is dovetailed and also opens and closes smoothly.
Below the drawer are two cupboard doors that open to large cupboard storage space. All the cupboard doors and the drawer have their original handles.
