What is the secretary?

The Secrétaire furniture was born in France in the eighteenth century which lasted until the early twentieth century.
This piece of furniture was particularly appreciated by the aristocracy and then broke the bourgeois limits.
The bourgeois residences, in terms of logistics and space, had nothing to do with the aristocratic ones and for this reason some modifications were made to the furniture to ensure that the functional purpose was added to the aesthetic purpose.
This Piece of Furniture was created for office secretaries, having a Folding Top designed as a support for writing, a sort of mix between a piece of furniture and a desk .
The bizarre aspect of these Antique Furniture is kept hidden in the heart of them.
They contain buttons and levers inside other drawers, in short, gadgets to be discovered.
They were mainly used to hide important documents and all the possessions they were worth, truly precious loot.
In addition to the working aspect, Wooden Secrétaires were usually found in bedrooms, which served as a desk for the ladies.
Over the course of those years, many copies of Antique Secrétaire were circulated according to the fashion of that moment and the geographical area concerned.

What is Limelight?

The limelight is a Piece of Furniture made up of two parts:

1. The lower part with drawers or doors.
2. The upper part includes a Folding Door (from which the name derives), which can be lowered or raised depending on the need.

When the Flap Doors antiques is open, it offers the possibility of using the support surface as if it were a desk, with the addition of small drawers where you can insert documents, papers or various stationery.
When we find the 18th Century Flap Doors closed, we can observe the wonder of their decorations and be able to place them in a specific historical/artistic period.
Over the years, the Flaps of the 700s have evolved to meet all the needs of society, especially women, who used the hidden compartments to keep their accessories and the top on which they placed a mirror to put on make-up or to write a great amount of letters.
We can recall various types of Ancient Flaps of that time (we are talking about the eighteenth century), such as Flap with Sliding Cover , Desk-Closet , Flap with Doors , Flap with Drawers or a Flap Bookcase in the upper part.
