I rescued a mahogany 1890's secretary that belonged to my wife's Aunt
Daisy from the flood in New Orleans Lakefront area. I have cleaned and
can re-assemble the main case and three lower drawers including the
flip down front (that you write on). However the small insert that sits
behind the flip down is pretty trashed with the vener popping off all
three drawers and two little doors. I have a few other items to restore
not to mention this exceeds my time and skill-set. Is anyone interested
in restoring this self contained shelf/drawer unit? I can send a few
photos to anyone who would like a project and we can hammer out a deal.
I am not sure what wood it is, but it is lighter than the mahogony
case.. maybe maple?
The face frame measures 26" wide by 20 High.
