Louis Phillipe North German Fall-Front Secretary in Flame Mahogany, circa 1855

About

A captivating one of a kind Louis Phillip secretary in book-matched, flame mahogany with shaped, curvi-linear drawer fronts and faux drawer fronts on the fall-front and the sides. Offers four hidden compartments for valuables. Northern Germany, circa 1855. The transition from Biedermeier to Grunderzeit (the period of the New Republic in Germany) corresponds with a period referred to as Northern European Louis Philippe (1850-70), reflecting a move from the austere and linear lines of Biedermeier toward softer curves and carving. This is one exceptional piece of artistry, ideal as a focal point or anchor in a living room, bedroom or library! Measures: 51 1/2" wide x 23 1/2" deep x 59 1/2" high. 37 3/8" deep when writing surface is open.
