Step into a narrative of art and history with our antique secretary desk, circa 1890, crafted from the sumptuous depths of mahogany. This rare Italian gem is adorned with hand-carved caryatids, ancient symbols of strength and beauty, bringing an air of mystique and enduring presence to any room. With its three ample drawers, practical interior cubbies, and elegant fold-down desk front, perfectly sized for both analog musings and digital ease. The stately top ledge presents a stage for your treasured decor, enhancing the desk's air of distinction.

Provenance: This cherished artifact began its journey with a cultured patroness of the arts who, while visiting Italy, found herself captivated by its beauty and storied past. She brought it home as a beloved keepsake, and through the years, it became a silent confidant to her life's most intimate moments.

Condition notes: Age has lovingly touched this piece—evident in the chip near the first drawer's lock and the earnest wear on the top's surface where items of past and present rest. Though the original key is lost, its absence adds to the desk’s layered history, awaiting the next custodian of its legacy.

How does delivery work?

After purchasing your piece, we'll locate a Private White Glove Delivery Transporter partner who can accommodate the route. Once the route is booked, we'll reach out to you with a delivery day window. Depending on your location, delivery can take between 1 to 4 weeks. Please note that white glove delivery transporters have to create a route picking up and delivering items along the way, so we can't guarantee an exact delivery date, but we'll provide an estimate and the company will reach out 24-48 hours prior to delivery.

What information do you need from me?

We'll need your accurate shipping address, phone number, and contact information before delivery can be scheduled. Failure to provide this information can lead to delays.

What if I need delivery to a different level of my home? Delivery is to your first floor, but if you need delivery to a different level of your home, please let us know prior to ordering and we'll try to accommodate by selecting a delivery provider who offers that service. Additional fees may apply.

How long does it take to arrange shipping for longer distances and remote areas? Please allow additional time to arrange shipping for longer distances and remote areas.

How are the pieces shipped?

Most of the time, pieces are shrink wrapped and then blanket wrapped and delivered from our warehouse to yours via independent shippers who are traveling long distances with several deliveries, so flexibility on your part for acceptance is required. If there are stairs involved, please let us know.

Do you accept returns?

We don't accept returns, but please let us know if you're unhappy for any reason. Please include your contact phone number at the time of purchase for shipping contact reasons.
