This secretary is in good condition for its age, with normal signs of age and use, dings, scratches, and other imperfections. Keys included but they are more of a handle for opening the drop front & drawers; locks aren’t working. The flat opened area has some scratches into the wood on the left corner in front of the drawers; nothing material, noted here for disclosure. 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 English and European antique furniture, barley twist items, beveled mirrors, wall shelves, and many other unique and personally selected pieces for your home or office décor!
