A wonderful and very ornamental mid 18th century Genovese hand painted three part secretary with all original paint. The secretary is raised by scalloped serpentine shaped supports. A central drawer below the writing surface is flanked by two front doors, which swing open to reveal a blue interior with a drawer above and shelved compartments. A set painted back panel between the supports and above the writing surface lead to the two door cabinet heavily decorated by bouquets of flowers bordered by ‘C’ scrolled foliate designs, which is repeated throughout. The two doors open to reveal compartments and central arbalest shaped shelves, finished with the same blue interior. At the top is a most attractive scalloped shaped crown with a central painted reserve.
