19th Century Christian VIII Scandinavian Writing Desk in Mahogany with Marquetry

About

This exceptional writing table with three drawers is from the reign of Christian VIII of Denmark. The Cuban mahogany employed is of an extraordinary grade and the oxidation that has naturally occurred from exposure to light has left it with a beautiful patina. In figured and book-matched mahogany, it has satin wood inlays in an arabesque design on the drawer fronts and the back splash and rests on turned, reeded and carved legs. Has working locks with one brass key, circa 1835. Measures: 49" long x 24 1/4" deep x 33 1/2" to top of gallery 31" to writing surface.
