    Secretary in solid and veneered Speckled Mahogany, with white marble top surrounded on three sides by an openwork brass gallery.
    It has a high drawer, offering a storage depth of 9.5 cm.
    Below, it consists of a flap revealing a space of sobriety characteristic of the Louis XVI Secretaries. It consists of four niches of varying sizes, six drawers of identical capacity, one of which is lined with vintage inkwells. The interiors are in Lemon tree, the molded fronts of the drawers in Speckled Mahogany veneer.
    The flap is covered with a green leather, adorned with a central Vignette, Fleurons d'Angles, and, on the border, friezes sometimes golden, sometimes on a hard background.
    In the lower part, this secretary has two doors, with a clasp for the left one, housing a new oak storage compartment that can be locked independently.
    These three front panel openings are fitted with cut-out brass locks and two Rare original and interchangeable Clover keys. This numerical inferiority is compensated by the presence on the top drawer of two pearl brass pull handles.
    It should be noted that the flap is fitted with a three-point lock, two lateral and one central, a guarantee of quality, the primary purpose of which was to ensure that the wood does not bend.
    The upright and fluted uprights of this piece of furniture are embellished with brass chutes in the upper part and rudentés in the lower part. They end in four tapered feet with hooves also in golden alloy.
    The sides of this Secretary with well thought out proportions are paneled.
