What a sweet desk! This Louis the XVI lady's writing desk has a wonderful inlaid parquetry pattern using contrasting woods such as rosewood and tulip wood. The top 2 shelves have decorative brass trim along the edges and on the shelf supports. Below the second shelf are 2 small shapely hand dovetailed drawers with inlay and brass trim. The desk top repeats the parquetry pattern and the serpentine edges are highlighted with brass trim. On the back left side, there is 4" of narrow trim loss. The drawer and sides below repeat the parquetry pattern which is framed in narrow brass trim. The long drawer retains its original lock and cast brass key escutcheon. The hand dovetailed drawer opens to reveal a blue velvet covered writing surface which slides back and forth to allow access to storage below. The desk stand on tall, slender, serpentine shaped legs highlighted with decorative brass castings. The stand retains its original finish which is in very good condition. There is some minor veneer damage or replacement which is to be expected and is visible only upon close examination. The desk is finished on all 4 sides and can be displayed away from a wall. 42.5"h X 28"w X 19.5"d, Condition: Very Good, Circa: 1860's.
