Gilded Florentine Writing Table/Vanity


Lovely gilded writing table with top detached secretary. Table itself has three drawers while the top secretary has two drawers. Both have concave centers. Original naturally patinated condition with a lot of wonderful ware. From natural usage the paints and gilding have worn off exposing the gesso in places and the wood in others. Original stickers made in Italy remain. Finished on all sides so it can float in a room. Structurally sound with back right leg slightly curved inward. Used by one previous owner in a Venetian Palazzo.
