Known as an estancionaria gabinete, this antique table-top secretary was designed like the top of a vargueno. This cabinet is fashioned with oak back and walnut veneer in geometric designs, with a hand forged iron lock. The drop front opens to a central door and small drawers; also veneered in patterns. The door displays an applied, cast brass Madonna. It is an intriguing desk and useful for storage of small treasures.
