French Art Deco Fall Front Secretary Cabinet
Possibly Ruhlmann or Christian Krass
Circa early 1920s, France

 

Rare Secretary cabinet made of exotic Bur Amboina (now an extinct species of wood)
With a beautiful contrasting inlay in a diamond pattern on the drop front door and at the stair-stepped top,
in a linear fluted pattern. The top acts as a pedestal, ideal for placing an important vase or statue.

The interior is fitted and has a leather desktop area, which appears to have been replaced.
Bronze Melon shaped fluted feet, we believe this was originally displayed on a separate raised
pedestal under the feet, that was likely signed. Along the way, someone has removed the pedestal,
leaving this beautiful piece of furniture a mystery.

The lower cabinet consists of 4 drawers with dark lacquered wood pulls, also of Amboina.

Dimensions: 51 " High, 28" Wide, 15" Deep + " Door Pull
Top Drop front door:  23 1/4"W     23"H

Condition: Exterior In excellent restored condition ( Jan 2009) with a French Lacquered finish.
Interior is original. We are happy to replace the leather top in your choice of color for an additional fee.

Item # FADC171 : Price: $ 25,000.
