Very fine George II secretary in the manner of Giles Grindey, having dentil molded stepped pediment, the single mirrored door with carved and gilt gesso boarder flanked by two pilasters with brass inlaid fluting, the simple interior with mahogany lined drawers, the case with two over three drawers with original swan neck pulls, standing on original bracket feet, the whole possessing a rich plum color and constructed of good dense timber. Door with unusual and original side lock. The idiosyncratic cartouche shaped door panel is often associated with Maker Giles Grendey.
- George II/1740-1749
