Sheraton Satinwood Secretary/Chiffoniere

No. R14295

Superb tiny George III satinwood Secretary/Chifoniere 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.

I’ve had three others over the years and seen a few more but they were all mahogany (some with satinwood inlay) whereas this beauty is all satinwood with Kingwood inlay.

The satinwood is of such high quality that the figure seems to glow from within.

 

Inside all the cubbyhole dividers and drawer bottoms are in Bermuda cedar (only found in the highest qulaity London pieces).
 

Perfect condition.
