French Ormolu Mounted Bureau Plat Partner's Desk, 19th Century

$28,000

About

Spectacular and unique 19th century French Louis XV style ormolu-mounted Kingwood partner's desk. The shaped top is with an inset tooled leather writing surface and an ormolu border, over a veneered kingwood frieze fitted with three drawers to each side, total of six drawers, all mounted with escutcheons and foliage-cast handles. The sides are mounted with appliques, all supported by four cabriole legs mounted with fine foliate and scroll-inspired ormolu mounts, terminating in bronze sabots. The gilding on the ormolu has maintained its brightness throughout its age. This is the only antique French bureau plat we've seen in over 30 years of business that is made as a partner's desk with three drawers on each side, which makes it more unique and desirable.
