finally for sale a very rare model r j horner double secretary or side by side bookcase with a wonderful very thick drop front and a great set of cubbies.  i have been collecting antiques for 5 decades and have owned 100's of r j horner pieces and have seen thousands, but this is the only double secretary by him like this one i have ever seen.  maybe i have not been at the right place or right time and you may own 20 of them, but this is the only one i have seen and therefore i believe it to be a very rare model.  at any rare it is a great piece,  original finish as you can see the finish is crazing a  good bit.  the grain and color of the piece is great with a great patina so i would not recommend stripping it under any circumstance.  as you see hopefully the secondaries are birdseye maple which about every mahogany horner piece i have has birdseye.    my camera is old, i am old and the pictures suck.  they are too dark and do not show the huge lions head in the top well nor the standing griffins under the drop front.  the top drawer is contoured serpentine top to bottom and the two lower drawers concave end to end.  the freeze (sp) at the top and sides is contoured serpentine  top to bottom and there is a neat scroll over the top of the big griffin on top with carved ends.  there are ionic twisted columns on either side of the curved glass upper door compartment.  the piece at the top and bottom has great lines and form concave forms in the center of the top and bottom sections.  everything original as far as i know including hardware.  i have owned this piece many years and it cost a pretty penny way back when.  the best i remember, it has inventory nos.  on the back and it used to have a piece of an r j horner paper label on the back.  i have not looked at its back for longer than many of you have been alive and it is too full and heavy for me to move to check if it is still there,  however, i guarantee it to be r j horner at his finest.  it is quite heavy.  when i moved it years ago i struggled , doubtful i can budge it now.  it has four great claw feet across the front and two i believe, maybe four? spiral turned bun feet across the back.  it is a large piece being 64 inches wide, about 69 inches tall, and 17 inches deep at the widest point.  it may be picked up at my home or shipped at buyer's expense.  good luck.  i didn't realize how dirty it was until i looked at the pictures and as i said the pictures are not good.  the piece looks much much nicer in person.
