French 19th Century Ebonized Desk with Leather Top
Dimensions: 29″H x 50″W x 31-1/4″D
A transitionally styled ebonized desk from 1880’s France. This refined desk is topped in a fabulous piece of peach-toned, natural colored leather. It is trimmed with gold tooling and embellished with a central diamond-shaped gold-tooled design. The desk’s top edge is trimmed in brass done in a leaf-and-berry motif. The apron houses a drawer that can be accessed with its brass knob that is surrounded by a knotted ribbon brass escutcheon. The slender legs are turned and taper to ends that are capped in brass sabots, cast in a palm leaf motif. It is not uncommon to see gilt brass fixtures on ebonized pieces of furniture, however, with the addition of peach leather, this sophisticated and smart desk is sent over the top!
