This stunning, solid cherry drop front secretary desk was a labor of love! Manufactured by Monitor Furniture Co. of Jamestown, NY, it exudes true vintage style. This piece has serpentine block-front drawers and claw feet. The slant front opens to reveal 7 drawers, six open slots, a closed compartment with carved wood door, and two secret pull out panels behind small columns on either side of the door large enough to hold a passport, paper currency, or other small items you may wish to conceal from view.

The entire piece has been sanded down to raw wood to reveal the beautiful cherry wood grain. After sanding, it was given a custom paint wash to even out the wood tones. The cubbies inside have been painted in Jacob's Well - a deep, mysterious green that perfectly complements the lush leafy print on the back wall of the desk. The original drawer pulls have been replaced with new bail pulls. The dovetailed drawers glide smoothly.

There is a keyhole cover and lock at the top of the desk and an accompanying key works to lock the top if desired. Two arms extend on either side of the desk for extra support when the front comes down, retracting when the desk front goes back up. The entire piece has been sealed with a water-based satin polyurethane, which gives it a wonderful sheen. Please note that the back side of the desk has not been painted because it is intended to flush up against a wall. It has been replaced with a new piece of wood.

This piece would be a marvelous addition to any space and would make excellent additional storage as well. Available for pickup in Windham, Maine, near the high school.
