Antique Swedish Biedermeier Satin Birch Secretaire Chest
This antique Swedish Biedermeier satin birch secrétaire chest has a wonderful original blond colour & it has one of the nicest interiors I've ever seen. I would date it to around the 1850-60's period & it's in excellent original condition. When checking out the exceptional interior behind the flap, please bear in mind that while you can see an image of all the drawers & cupboards open, there is one more secret drawer at the bottom of the interior. It's the larger shaped one without handles & this can be pulled out when the cupboard is open. All the handles on the interior drawers look like bone, but I can't be sure & all the drawers have fine dovetails. This secretaire chest is very fine quality throughout & very heavy too. It has a stepped up top & sits on bracket feet. There are many other fine details, so please enlarge all the images.
