Very nice middle desk in blackened pear veneer inlaid with brass threads.
The front face opens with three drawers, including the central drawer set back slightly, by a subtle three-lobed recess.
All the faces decorated with brass threads tracing geometric reserves.
The crosspieces on the sides strongly scalloped, the rear face simulating three drawers.
The strongly arched uprights offer profiles with protruding edges and rest on bronze deer hooves.
Tray with cut sides covered with a black morocco gilded with small irons (wear)
Beautiful ornamentation of finely chiseled original bronze, with their old period gilding.
Very good state of conservation.
Parisian work from the time of the Regency around 1720.
Height: 78 cm; Width: 149 cm; Depth: 74 cm
Our opinion :
While the majority of Regency flat desks adopt a Louis XV line, with very thin, strongly arched feet, this is not the case with our desk, which still retains a frankly Louis Quatorzian inspiration.
Indeed, the purity of the design of our office is a legacy of André Charles Boulle's productions, particularly in the expression of power conferred by the large profiled uprights, which contrast with the finesse of deer hooves.
The strength and lightness of our desk and its optimal state of preservation will delight the most demanding collectors.
