A beautiful secretary constructed by skilled cabinetmakers, this piece is adapted from a Fall Front Desk, found in the Smithsonian’s Castle Collection. Its clean lines provide a simple elegance, reflecting the details and design of the early 1800’s, including multiple compartments. The dark stained wood and handcrafted details reflected the tastes of the growing upper, middle class of that era.
Since 1930, Butler Specialty Company has furnished America's homes with fine lines of occasional and accent furniture. Founded by two men during one of the bleakest eras in our nation's history, the Great Depression, Butler not only survived but thrived because of its commitment to producing quality furniture and staying in touch with home fashion trends. That commitment lives on today. A family-owned company, Butler is operated by the third generation. The Chicago-based corporation scours the globe to find the most efficient sources of production and finest materials for its world-class designs. When it began importing in the late 1970s, Butler became a leader in pursuing a global approach to the highest quality and value a tradition that continues into the 21st century. Butler uses only the finest-quality woods, veneers, and hand-carved craftsmanship in its collections. The Heritage Collection, Butler's flagship line, fuses enduring design, exquisite carving, and carefully selected solid mahogany and fossil stone into a classic line of home accent pieces. All Butler collections are design-driven, immaculately crafted, and sharply priced resulting in exceptional value for North American consumers. Browsing through the bombe chests, hand-painted consoles, distinctive secretaries, decorative tables, popular British-inspired game tables, and other fine occasional furniture featured in this catalog underscores why Butler is recognized as a leader in occasional and accent furniture.
