    Our Stock # 18.9657

    This is an antique ladies writing desk. A French, walnut decorative bonheur du jour, dating to the late Victorian period, circa 1900.

    • Beautiful craftsmanship with superb colour and form
    • Displaying a desirable aged patina and in very good order
    • Select walnut stocks present exquisite golden caramel hues
    • Striking grain interest evident throughout the frame and openings
    • Sarcophagus top sits prominently above the serpentine front
    • Multiple surfaces displaying exceptional marquetry with animal and foliate decor
    • Lifting upwards, the arched lid dressed with an ormolu lock escutcheon — key present
    • Opening to reveal an extending writing surface and a trio of small drawers over a faux fascia
    • Surface replete with an inset leather writing skiver in a deep forest green hue
    • Sash aprons to each side and the front, hosting a trio of shaped drawers
    • Front knees accentuated with eye-catching ormolu mounts, displaying gilt tones
    • Standing upon a quartet of slender, elongate cabriole legs

    Observed by our in-house restorers during the professional clean the desk received, a wonderful discovery was made within the frame - a personal note left in 1905; ordinarily hidden within this fine piece, and potentially discovered for the first time since it was written nearly 120 years ago. A fascinating find, captured here for posterity.

    This is a superb antique ladies writing desk, with an exquisite decorative finish, fit for the finest of rooms. Solid joints and construction, delivered ready for the home.
