Unique one of a kind vintage French style desk or bureau plat. This desk offers a true ebonized finish that contrasts ever so elegantly with the glamorous Doré ormolu trim. Five drawers make using this desk an absolute breeze, as they all glide effortlessly and offer substantial storage, too.

The original green and gold tooled leather top should clean up to last another 40 or 50 years. **This could also be a phenomenal dressing table in the right space.**
