Walnut Sheraton Secretary
This is a gorgeous antique walnut secretary desk. This wonderful walnut secretary is in two pieces, the lower writing desk with 2 drawers and letter trays on either side of the drawers and the top piece which would be a bookcase or for storing knick-a-knacks. There is a wonderful lock on the desk lid, the interior drawers and the bureau drawers in the lower section. The lower desk or escritoire section has three drawers with lovely dovetailing joinery and wonderful wooden drawer pulls. On the upper section of the desk on one of the internal shelves, it is signed with “Mr. (?) Morrow; Squire, Ohio Oh and a drawing of a dog”. Please view all photographs as we strive to depict each item to its fullest and most honest with photographs and written descriptions. This piece may show minor age appropriate signs of wear including wood imperfections and separations, but as shown it is in overall very good cosmetic and structural condition for its age – Ca. 1790-1820. There is an area on the desk writing area where it appears ink was spilled. This wonderful secretary is strong, sturdy, very heavy and of top quality. This would be a wonderful addition to any home or office.
The back slats and top shelves I believe are of pine as are the sides back and bottoms of the drawers, the rest of the secretary is walnut.
