SKU: 1912/SD

Vintage French Mid Century Mahogany Stacking Bookcase/Secretary. 


The glass-fronted bookcase entered the English cabinetmakers' repertoire about the mid-17th century, and the bookcase in one form or another has been an indispensable part of the civilized person's home ever since. The 17th century bookcase tended to be a glazed cabinet from plinth to pediment, with square glass panes. The later Stuart period saw the introduction of the bureau bookcase or the secretaire bookcase, where the bookshelves were double-heightened above a desk or cupboard base. Early bureau bookcases often had mirror or blind-paneled door fronts, although these have frequently been replaced with clear glass panes.


The top of this piece opens to reveal a shelf and plenty of storage space for books and office supplies. The second section opens up to a gorgeous red leather desktop ready to hold your laptop, legal pad or any other project on which you may be working. Beneath this section is a hidden cubby that is divided up and designed to hold your files and important paperwork. On the very bottom is a drawer to hold your boxes of staples, paperclips or extra legal pads.
