19th Century Wood Louis XVI Revival Rosewood Pair of France Secretaire, 1880s

$7,418.66per set


Fantastic and rare pair of French inlaid secretaries, their particularity and in the fact that the inlays are on one positive and the other negative, a game of woods that makes them equal but different at the same time. They are one right and one left, just look at the cornucopias on the front of the secretaire. Original and in good condition, there are some shortcomings and the bronzes on the lower band have been lost (you can see the halo of where they were) once restored you will no longer see anything. Rosewood and kingwood and fruitwood inlays. Original marbles in red king of France.
