Excellent New England paint decorated 2-part secretary, poplar, probably Vermont, c. 1835-1845. Ht. 87" (7'3"); W. 43"; D. 23". The original 2-tone grain paint has remained in excellent condition. The inside desk decoration, having rarely seen daylight, has retained remarkable color. Condition: Untouched, "as found" condition; missing a piece of base molding on the side and front. Note: The lift-top and multi-drawer design suggests it was made for a country store.
