A French miniature walnut slant-front desk with two serpentine drawers and bun feet from the mid 19th century. This French walnut miniature secretary features a slanted top, opening up to reveal multiple inner drawers and compartments, layed-out in a semi-circular manner. The lower section of the piece comprises two serpentine drawers, whose sinuous silhouette contrasts beautifully with the clean lines of the desk portion. The ensemble is raised on four bun feet. Its adorable petite size indicates that this piece was likely a salesman sample. Used on a desk top to organize documents, on a commode or in a child's room, this French 1840s miniature secretary will be an unusual and charming addition to any décor.
