Magnificently crafted from exotic imported mahogany, this Empire style desk was created during the Second Empire in a revival of the epoch created by Napoleon Bonaparte. The leather top is augmented by pull-out side surfaces also upholstered in leather. The simple architecture of the bureau plat below has been lavished with over a half-dozen different bronze oromolu mounts recalling the classicism of ancient Greece, Rome & Egypt. What's more, the ornamentation encircles the entire desk, making this suitable for placement anywhere in the room. Multiple drawers ensure superb functionality and in fact make this an ideal choice for the 21st century office or study!
Circa 1870.
