AN EXCEPTIONAL FRENCH NEOCLASSICAL ROSEWOOD, BRONZE AND LEATHER BUREAU PLAT
Probably France, circa third quarter of 19th century
Item # 707KWP26Z 


This very fine French writing desk is inordinately rich - the rosewood veneers utilized to dress the facade are most dramatic and are beautifully polished.  The gilded bronze mounts contrast against the warm reds of the surface, each exquisitely chiseled and remarkably well detailed.  Pierced displays of swirling acanthus form the spandrels of each drawer corner surrounding elaborate escutcheons with classical masks surrounded by chaotic foliage; the drawers are framed with etched bronze edging.  Each drawer is hand dovetailed with the front sides finished with rosewood and the back corners exposed with graduated dovetail pins.  The top of the desk is framed in a solid cast bronze edging with repeating foliage and an open gallery with pierced repeating ovular forms.  The angular form is raised over tapered legs terminating in cast bronze acorn feet.

For the serious connoisseur of the finest in French furnishings, this is an exceptional acquisition.

Measurements:  40 3/8” W x 21 3/4” D x 31” H

Condition Report:
Minor surface scuffs and blemishes, overall outstanding condition.  Leather on the top is probably replaced with minor blemishes.
