Federal Secretary

This is one of only 17 reproductions of this Federal Secretary Desk that were made by Kittinger in the early 1970's. Few examples of furniture in the Colonial Williamsburg collection better exemplify the Federal style than this delicate secretary bookcase with its overall lightness of design, extensive use of the best crotch veneer and lightwood inlays, and reverse-painted glass panels on the doors. Behind the doors of the upper section are seven pigeonholes and three drawers. The shelves are adjustable; and the folding writing surface of the lower section is lined with cabinet cloth. The brilliantly conceived original was made in Boston, and its features have been faithfully copied in this meticulous reproduction.
