Professional packaging and shipping on this item will require freight service due to size. White glove service, fully insured, FOB Shreveport, delivered and placed inside your home (first floor only), typically 4-6 weeks, depending on your location.
This item is in good condition for its age, with normal signs of age and use, dings, scratches, and other imperfections. The secretary/bookcase is two separate pieces; the top bookcase sits upon the lower bureau.
Key included for the drop front top and lower drawers; antique locks are finicky and NEVER guaranteed. Ink staining on the interior cubbyhole; finish wear. I always provide multiple photos that should be considered as an integral part of the description and I encourage you to email me with any questions you might have prior to bidding. Please keep in mind antique furniture should be purchased for its uniqueness, higher quality material and craftsmanship and antique patina, charm and character….NOT for like-new condition!!!
I also invite you to take a minute to visit my online store, Geaux Vintage Antiques, to see more French, English and European antique furniture, as well as an outstanding selection of antique home décor, all personally selected for your home or office!
