Antique French Louis XVI Style Desk Unrestored and Beautiful

Buyer Protection Guaranteed

About

Antique French Louis XVI Style Desk, in a warm aged cherry color, that only decades of filtered sunlight could have achieved. I would have loved to tell you that our Old Plank finishing department came up with this color, but it would have been a big lie. Look closely and you can see how the lightly bleached cherry changes hue, every so slightly from side to side. Once in a great moon, we will purchase a commode in cherry and will see the same warming take place, but to find a desk and in this nice of an original unrestored condition is rare. This is as beautiful, an antique Louis XVI Style desk, as you are ever likely to see. Locks and keys function as they were intended to do so.
