These triptych desks can be positioned at several angles, using notches on the base and are composed on either side of arms supporting screw-in bins, finely chiseled in gilded bronze.
The belt opens, under the lecterns, with two mahogany drawers framed with gilded bronze and beaded rods. The one on the right is centered with a medallion pull surrounded by a gilded bronze garland, the one on the left centered with a medallion lock surrounded by two gilded bronze foliage.
The corners of the crosspieces are decorated with stylized acanthus leaves in gilded bronze.
It is supported by four sheathed feet framed with gilded bronze rods at the corners, topped with capitals and finished with sabots, molded into gilded bronze heart stripes.
The legs are joined by a shelf in the lower part, curved on the front and surrounded by a gilded bronze ingot mold.
