A most elegant French Louis XV Style Writing Desk or Bureau Plat, crafted with distinguished attention to detail from solid wood.
This desk embodies the essence of French aristocratic design. The rosewood veneer with shellac polish is adorned with finely engraved brass accents, creating a warm opulent aura.
The gracefully profiled writing surface is elegantly curved, adorned with genuine leather and gold embossing. Supported by three drawers, this desk stands on captivating cabriole legs, their beauty accentuated by ornate pierced foliate ormolu sabots and elaborate chased corner mounts.
The top boasts a gilt bronze border and a brown real leather inset writing area above three drawers in the frieze. The back features similar decoration with faux drawers.
Highly decorative brass fittings, including handles shaped as rocaille motifs and flowers, add an extra layer of allure to this piece.
The desk displays age-appropriate wear that only adds to its character. The leather boasts a delightful patina, while a small hole can be observed, as depicted in the picture. Minor scratches and minute veneer chips are discernible, in line with the expected signs of age and usage of this fine piece.
