Given an elegant form honoring the style preferences of Louis XV, this bureau plat was painted in the black lacquer fashion popular during the second half of the 19th century, then highlighted with foliate flourishes in various shades of gold. Next, cast bronze ormolu mounts were applied to add decoration and protect the corners and legs. Finally, a leather top was applied for the ultimate in writing surfaces. As is usually the case, the leather has not survived the decades, and will be replaced with newly tooled sheepskin for an opulence without compare!
