Biedermeier Fall-Front Secretary Desk

The simplicity of design truly showcases the artisan craftsmanship of this gorgeous European Biedermeier fall-front secretary desk. This piece was brought over to the US from Italy, however it likely originally hails from Vienna or Germany, circa 1815-1830.

The Biedermeier style was one of the first movements that came about due to a growing middle class that embraced the ideal of elegance through simplicity of design and material. As such, much Biedermeier furniture was made from locally available woods such as cherry and pearwood.

At approximately 200 years old, this piece does show some minor warping, most likely due to the drastically different climate of the US versus its native Europe. This does not affect the ease with which the draws and fall-front open and close. The secretary comes with a working key for the drawers, however, needs to be fitted with a key for the fall-front.
