An antique Swedish secretaire chest of drawers dating from the mid to late 1800’s.
The body is made of baltic pine with light mahogany veneers. The interior of the secretaire is fitted with tiny drawers and cupboards. There are three drawers below with original locks and fine dovetails. The chest stands on sturdy bracket feet.
Fair - This is in unrestored condition. Two of the escutcheons are damaged and the top panel that folds out into the secretaire desk leans down slightly so that it is not perfectly straight for leaning and writing on.
The piece stands sturdy and straight, and the bottom drawers run beautifully. It does not come with a key.
This piece would be beautiful in its current condition as a bedroom chest of drawers, with the tiny hidden compartments used for jewellery storage.

What Condition Descriptions Mean
All of our items are antique (over 100 years old), vintage or modern and pre-loved. Marks and other wear often add warmth and character to a piece; this is called its' patina of age. Our condition descriptions note this and also identify any damage, which is anything that detracts from the items' value.

I’ve never been a fan of vintage / second hand shopping until I walked into Greystones Antiques. The products are in immaculate condition and all so beautiful - I went to pick up one chair but honestly I was overwhelmed with how much I wanted to buy (and left with much more than I expected to)!!!
Amazing and friendly service. I purchased a 1930's Vanity Dressing Table and Mirror. The delivery was easy and this piece is exactly what I was looking for. It's in amazing condition and it was a very fair price!
