NOTE:  All of our antiques are direct from Europe.   I personally select each item for the quality, design and unique characteristics that you will always find in our distinctive inventory at Geaux Vintage Antiques!

PLEASE SHOP OUR STORE and feel free to email with any questions!



Due to the larger size, this item requires freight service.  White glove service, fully insured, FOB Shreveport, delivered and placed inside your home (first floor only).  Typically 5-7 weeks, depending on your location.

Please note this longer time period for white glove service; no refunds will be given because of the length of delivery time.

   Please email Geaux Vintage Antiques with your zip code for a shipping estimate.



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.  Keys included BUT old antique locks are finicky and NEVER guaranteed!! This was wired, at one time, for display lighting. Lighting has been removed, but some small plastic wiring holders remain (you can’t see them unless you look for them).   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 making a purchase.  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!!!


Geaux Vintage Antiques has a large inventory of French, English and European antique furniture, as well as an outstanding selection of antique home décor…


 …”with all that, why Geaux anywhere else?”…
