Stopped us right in our tracks as we happened upon the highly detailed, hand painted 1930's petite secretary desk. Straight from its original owner, this pieced lived with one woman since her childhood in a Manhattan turn of the century space.

Off white, original finish painted surface with hand painted black and yellow details such as scrolls, stripes, and edging. The hardware is lovely with original brass patina on the knobs and escutcheons.

The top interior consists of two removable shelves. The interior of the top is in its original orange/peach tone paint. The front opens on a hinge and is covered with metal netting.
3 drawers on the bottom underneath the front pull down desk top which reveals a drawer and storage compartments.

The remains of the original maker's label is in the top drawer as shown.

Patina and character. Surface wear. A few dings and scratches. An old pink tone paint splatter in the interior desk area. None of this wear distracts from how pretty we think it is.
