French 19th Century Ebonized Louis Philippe Leather Top Desk
Dimensions: 29 1/4″H x 51″W x 25 1/2″D
A traditional French Louis Philippe desk with leather top from the 19th century, that has been more recently ebonized. This handsome desk has a wine colored leather writing surface that is marvelously patinated and trimmed with gold tooling. A leather topped slide comes out of the left side of the desk that can be used as additional workspace, or a place to rest your beverage. A total of four drawers can be found in the desk, with the center drawer above the kneehole being the only lockable drawer. The kneehole has a clearance of 23″. Three drawers have brass shield escutcheons and the right drawer has a brass cup pull. The desk’s legs are turned and tapered with fluted carvings.
