French Mahogany Tooled Leather Desk on X-Base 1900s, Offered by La Porte


Lovely French early 1900s mahogany writing desk, has a stylish curvaceous X-base joined by a turned stretcher, tooled leather top surface, accents with all original brass ring pulls and capped at feet. In exceptional original condition for its age, though some minor ware and trace of candle wax stain. It can be easily restored and refreshed by a professional, but we will leave it to buyer to decide or as is. Mahogany has a lovely patina and is structurally sound. Retains maker's stamp.
