The Secretaire

A French term for a type of bureau desk in translation a ‘secretary’. Like a bureau, it has a drop front that pulls out to reveal a writing surface, small drawers and pigeonholes. Its front, however, is usually disguised as a drawer which, when let down, is supported on semicircular brass slides known as quadrants. The secretaire may have either cupboards or drawers beneath the writing desk.
