The fall-front opening descends to reveal a full green leather writing surface, along with storage shelves and six drawers. The bottom doors conceal even more storage space, as well as a hidden safe for one's most important collectibles. Doré bronze accents of rosettes, foliage and urns further adorn the piece, which is finished by a white marble top.Beginning in the early 18th century in France, secrétaires, writing bureaus, and bookcases became increasingly popular ain the homes of the wealthy and well educated. Secrétaires such as this became the focal point of estates, serving as statements of wealth, culture, and education.
