Superb tiny George III satinwood secretary/etagere attributed to Thomas Blades & Son.
It has a fold-down drawer enclosing a desk with five drawers (original pulls ) and four cubbyholes. The top has two shelves flanked by baluster supports with urn finials and below two panel doors, raised on troupe feet.
The satinwood is of such high quality that the figure seems to glow from within.
