Offered for sale is a rare 18th century French Faience miniature bureau made by the Sceaux factory of France. The bureau contains eight drawers, four side by side and is crested with lions and cherubs flanking a vase. This is a highly decorated piece with hand painted vignettes depicting pastoral scenes and floral sprays.
It is a whimsical piece possibly made to hold jewelry. It is in restored condition with some staple repairs and stabilized cracks, as well as some secondary breaks and cracks still present, but is still viable for display. The old repairs lend an air of antiquity that one comes to expect from a 200-year plus piece of earthenware.
Size: 16" Height by 12 ½" Width by 5" Depth.
