Spectacular antique French Louis XVI style ebonized desk resting on its original fluted legs and having its original polished brass trimmings, too. This desk is breathtaking, from its sultry black leather top to its polished brass feet, this fine desk has an over the top appearance. Being finished on all four sides, this dynqamite desk can easily float within a room or make a stunning dressing table by simply adding a mirror. The leather clad double slides are an added bonus, extending the work surface by nearly 3 feet. If you are not only looking for functionality but, also for sheer beauty and personality, look no further as this fine specimen offers it all. A very special desk, indeed!!
