Description: c. 1780. This secretary bookcase is extremely well executed with all of the important embellishments this form takes. For example, the broken arch pediment employs dental work within its molding, which is punctuated with small holes, a magnificent open fretwork, and if this is not enough, blind fretwork below. Of course, the classic urn completes the composition.
