Gorgeous & rare antique French Napoleon III era three piece gilded bronze desk or writer's set including stationery casket, blotter or portfolio and pen tray with elegant matching 'gilt rope' decoration! We normally find these all separately and only on a very rare occasion are the sets still together. Here's a beautiful exception, consisting of three original matched pieces and rare to include the dome topped stationery box! All with a simple but very elegant gilded finish and the solitary gold rope as decoration! A stunning set, an easy fit into just about any decorative style and priced to move!
Very good condition! Just a very minor surface blemish and/or discoloration in spots (likely would clean with a bit of polish). The interior dividers of the stationery box are missing but I am currently having replacements made (two that will run side to side and in the same colors as the original interior). There is some slight scratching to the front of the portfolio and wear to the binding & silk interior. See pictures for measurements.
