Louis XVI Style French Antique Desk

About

Handsome Louis XVI style desk with a superb leather writing surface. This mahogany piece has been ebonized and finished with a French polish finish for luster. The leather surface has an embossed, gold leafed frieze border. The desk has a pullout leaf on each end. The leaves add an additional 9.75” to the length each. The front of the desk has five brass trimmed dovetailed drawers. One long drawer in the centre, flanked by smaller drawers on the sides. The hardware is all brass, and each drawer has a working lock and key. The four supporting legs are tapered and fluted. This is an elegant piece for an office!
