Beautiful drop front mahogany inlaid secretary desk made by Colonial Manufacturing in circa 1935. This beautifully detailed mahogany desk was created as a limited number of exact reproductions in connection with the Edison Institute (also called the Henry Ford Museum) in Michigan and faithfully reproduces the detail, materials and design of an early American colonial desk.

The front desk surface has a beautiful floral design inlaid in a lighter wood, probably tulip wood or maple, while the rest of the desk is crafted of Honduran Mahogany. The interior has a beautifully designed curved interior, complete with pigeon holes and small drawers. The interior also cleverly conceals a few hidden drawers and compartments, which would be perfect for storing valuables or precious metals.

Very beautifully done, this desk has been sensitively restored and refinished. It is ready for your home and use.
