Attractive and useful most probably French Secretaire Abattant.
This fall front desk is large enough to store all of your office paperwork.
The drawer linings are all in good condition, they slide easily and close snugly to the frame as they should.
The fall front flap lock and the bottom cupboard lock both have their keys.
The top lock also locks the top drawer.

The writing surface flap has a minor horizontal historical shrinkage split across the front which is reflected in the leather surface on the rear.
The top surface of the cabinet has some  shrinkage between planks, visible at one end but not the other.
The flap supporting arms have been reattached to it in the past, we have photos of this.
The top hinge area of the left hand hinged lower door has a historical veneer repair.
The legs are delicate but sturdy, this is a very heavy piece of furniture.
We have more photos on request
