Inlaid French Bureau Plat / Writing Table

$11,400

About

This early 20th century inlaid bureau plat features an attractive inlaid kingwood harlequin pattern along the front, sides and back. The brass-mounted mahogany legs are each inlaid with a kingwood band on their two out-facing sides. In a cohesive style choice, the retained original leather is nicely matched to the mahogany legs and drawer bandings. The drawers are locked by a single central mechanism featuring a brass escutcheon with a bow and bell flower decoration. This desk is stamped "E. Gallet, Paris" on its underside.
