Swedish painted secretary

Written by lantiques.

An antique Secretary Desk by the Goddard & Townsend Families ranks eight in top 10 most expensive antiques in the world. With a myriad of drawers and shelves to fit in a relatively small space, the secretaire is a medium for makers to show their ability. And since the 19c secretary desks were used mainly by women to write their correspondence, their design had to appeal to their feminine taste. After all, a beautifully written epistle required a beautifully crafted support. Very useful and at home in most modern environments, they make great home offices.
This painted Swedish secretaire in duck egg green will add extra colour and storage space in any room it will grace.
