Signed with original Bernini tag to inside of compartment and underside of chair.

We have also been in contact with Fabio Lenci and he confirmed that this piece was originally designed as a flexible multi use desk which could be used as both a desk or as a ladies vanity/dressing table. (A copy of this correspondence is available to the buyer). This multi-purpose desk features eighteen compartments comprised of drawers, containers and shelving while the leather desk top features three flip-top compartments, one concealing a vanity mirror and ; this example retains the full original complement of six movable drawer units.
