French 19th Century Barley Twist Fold Down Desk

$6,995

About

A handsome, impressive carved mahogany desk with gem-cut decorations and fitted bird's-eye maple interiors and original black leather writing surface. A very interesting key unlocks the top part of this fine desk, folding down to an interior fitted with nine storage areas. The top of the desk slides forward reveling the writing surface which is pulled out and then dropped down for a very functional and usable writing surface. Below the writing surface are three large drawers (one is a faux front, one large drawer with a hidden locked compartment). The whole sits on impressively carved barley twist legs, 1840s.
