Louis XVI mahogany cylinder desk - France 18th century

Large Louis XVI mahogany cylinder desk, bookcase integrated on top, France, 18th century circa 1780-90.

Cylinder desks were created at the end of Louis XV reign ; they are mechanical pieces of furniture, which allows - once closed - to keep the work spread on the desktop confidential.

Our cylinder desk opens with a leather-trimmed sliding tray, a bookcase and 6 drawers at the top, 3 small drawers inside the cylinder (including a secret drawer), and 3 drawers under the belt plus a double drawer with a chest inside.

High quality Parisian production - unsigned :
- Cuban mahogany on oak, ebony inlays
- a secret compartment (the upper right drawer has a double bottom that reveals a secret cavity to hide valuable items)
- all locks are clover-shaped

Excellent condition, completely restored with a new varnish. Shiny finish without accidents or lack. Original gilt leather preserved.

Length : 129cm
Depth : 63cm
Total height : 169cm
