Overview

A very beautiful and well-crafted French bureau plat desk in fine mahogany parquetry inlaid with satinwood marquetry that has been hand-colored. The finely articulated ormolu mounts, sabots, and hardware were originally bronze doré over yellow brass. The doré is very worn at this point but the patina of the brass is perfect.. Desk floats in the room, the front and back are identical with drawers on one side. There are 3 original keys and all of the locks work. The original green leather top is in very good condition. Finished in a beautiful French polish.
Measures: 69" long x 34 1/2" deep x 30 1/2" high
