This walnut secretary bookcase, also known as a bureau desk, is crafted in England by a traditional cabinetmaker. The burl walnut, which is treated to an elaborate finishing process, displays a rich complexion and grain, which are complemented wonderfully by solid brass hardware. The brown leather-inlaid desk, which locks with an accompanying key, also looks quite elegant, while the desk itself provides a variety of drawers and compartments for convenient office storage. Four exterior drawers, each built with sturdy dovetailed joints, also offer storage space, while the locking bookcase, which features individual pane glass doors, contains two shelves. This secretary bookcase also comes with an optional pediment that screws into the bookcase. This butlers desk does break down into two pieces (top and bottom) for easier transporting.
