From the whimsical sweeping scrolls that make the legs, clawed textured feet, to a splash of the original wood peaking through and the original secretary letter organizer and brass hardware. The personality of this sweet piece shines through at every turn.
Slender enough to fit in a hall or small nook, but also substantial enough to make an impact in any room.
We've refinished this piece in General Finishes Persian Blue and topped it with a dark glaze and poly top coat. The glazing especially brings out all the antique details that make pieces such as these so very special. The wood that this piece was made out of was absolutely stunning and to let the original shine through we left the drawer unpainted, but has been re-stained and top coated. We suspect that this piece may be made from Birds-eye Maple, as the tell-tale knots suggest.
