A Swedish Gustavian style drop front secretary from circa 1840 with gray painted finish, writing area and three graduated drawers. This Swedish Gustavian style drop-front secretary, crafted around 1840, is a masterpiece of classical elegance.

The rectangular top of this piece features distinctively protruding canted corners in the front, adding a touch of refinement to the design. The upper section reveals the drop-front desk, a charming surprise that opens to unveil a meticulously designed interior. Seven drawers encircle a central open compartment, providing a wealth of storage space for documents, letters, or treasured keepsakes.

Short tapered feet elevate the piece, giving it a light and airy quality while ensuring it stands firmly on the ground.
