Circa 1900, Qing dynasty Chinese hongmu desk. The top has a central rectangular panel enclosed by four sections which are mitred at the corners. Beneath the top is an ogee moulding which gives the impression of a raised top, and beneath this is a half round section and three drawers. The drawers have raised panels and brass swan neck handles. At the side is a fielded panel and the back has three fielded panels. The whole piece stands on four square legs which are rounded on the outside. Just above the feet is an intricate lattice and turned shelf. The feet finish with a slight curve. The desk retains its original patination, has good colour and is sturdy.
