French 19th Century Inlay Lady’s Desk

$4,200

About

This is a darling petite lady’s writing desk from France circa 1850. Sleek and uncluttered design, typical of its Louis XVI style. A wonderful white marble top is encircled by an elegant breakfront pierced brass gallery. The body of the desk has been crafted from a combination of vibrant mahogany and rosewood; showcased throughout with tasteful inlay work and thoughtful bookmatching. The glass in both doors is original and features a wavy texture and delightful bubbles. The locking doors house a display or storage space with a single removable shelf. Just below the doors are two small drawers with brass pulls. The desk top folds open to reveal a green leather writing surface with gold tooling in good antique condition; wear consistent with use where the surface hinges. The apron houses a single locking drawer flanked by two pull-out support bars for when the writing surface is open. Two keys are included. The whole is raised on tapered legs. Make sure to view the detailed images for a closer look at its fine condition and see below for specific measurements.
