A magnificent antique Victorian Bonheur De Jour French style desk, beautifully made from burr walnut. This dates from around the 1850-70s period.
It is of superb quality, with all the fine original features, including the ebonised trimming. The burr walnut veneers are stunning and this has a gorgeous colour. There is profuse satin wood inlay all around the drawers and top edges. There are also extremely fine quality ormolu mounts on all edges, running all the way down the legs and terminating at the feet. The top sections have beautiful pierced galleries and the handles are also made from intricately crafted gilt bronze. This has a mirrored upper door with a cabinet inside, six small upper drawers and one large drawer under the desk. The writing surface also has an inset embossed leather top.
This is a rare and impressive piece, we have just had it French polished, the condition is excellent for its age. We have had the inset leather replaced, and this comes with a locking key for the upper cabinet.
