Fabulous Miniature Italian Desk with Inlay

I am pleased to present this fabulous miniature furniture piece. Italian in origin, it dates to the late 18th century. Beautiful inlay decorates the top, front, and sides of the desk. Classical urns, floral garlands, and a Roman bust in a laurel leaf wreath embellish this small treasure. The serpentine top opens to reveal the writing shelf with four small drawers. The front contains three long drawers and two small ones. It measures 15.5" high by 15" wide by 8" deep. It is in very good condition for a piece its age. It does have a missing escutcheon and lock. The wood on the back shows a few inactive worm holes. And two small pieces of veneer are missing. All perfectly typical for its age. A perfect size to display on top of a chest or vanity. It would also be wonderful in a doll vignette. Additional photos may be requested.
