Condition Report:
This Secretaire is in good condition. Nominal old use marks to the corners and leading edges but nothing significant considering the age of the item. The oval brass back plates and handles are original, and in fine condition having been cleaned. The Secretaire retains its working hinges and locking mechanism. The interior is fitted with a new dark blue and gold tool leather. Therefore, the leather is clean and free from any wear, damage, and stains. All drawers close flush to the frame and feature the original working locks (with a key). The item stands on its original slayed feet and incorporates the original backboards. As it boasts the original polish, it has a fantastic colour and patination; this can only be achieved through age and years of care and cleaning it has received. It is solid in joint and ready to use.
