18th Century Spanish Pine Inlaid Wood Secretary. This lovely piece is reputed to have belonged to a high ranking official of the Catholic church, perhaps a cardinal or a bishop long ago. The chief wood is pine inlaid with a lighter unknown wood. While the interior is much newer, the secretary is rare and almost entirely intact. Motifs include crosses and orbs as well as sacred hearts. Expert rail, panel and stile construction is used throughout. For the real collector or a serious novice, this secretary is a hands down, thumbs up!
