This very beautiful piece of furniture is both a desk as well as a game table. It is made out of mahogany and plated mahogany. The movable tray is covered with brown leather on one side, and felt on the other side which reveals a compartment in blackened wood with marquetry of white wood and green stained wood.

On the inside, there are two hatches that reveal storage compartments where tokens can be stored.
On the apron of the table, there are two drawers that open.

This little desk rests on four tapered and fluted legs that are finished off with brass feet.
The carved and gilded bronze ornamentation of garlands and denticules can be found on the keyholes and the feet.


Period: circa 1780 ?

Cabinetmaker:

Martin Ohneberg’s reputation is excellent. His very high quality furniture is entirely of the styles of Transition and Louis XVI which includes plated furniture as well as marquetry-covered items.
La réputation de Martin Ohneberg est excellente. Sa production de très bonne qualité appartient tout entière aux styles Transition et Louis XVI et comporte aussi bien des meubles en placage uni que des ouvrages revêtus de marqueteries. Celles-ci, variées et très décoratives, constituent une spécialité de l’ébéniste.
Plusieurs de ses meubles sont exposés au musée du Louvre à Paris, dont une commode transition et une coiffeuse Louis XVI.
