This set hails from Paris, where exotic mahogany was imported from the New World at then un-heard of prices to produce exquisite furniture destined to last for centuries. During the latter years of the Second Empire it became a custom to produce furniture in the First Empire style, with tailored, almost stark architecture adorned by lavish bronze ormolu mounts reminiscent of the spectacular gold discoveries at the time in Ancient Egypt. Combining those styles with French claccisicm became an icon in the design world, and we all benefit from it! This set features a triple door bookcase with wire mesh on the center door allowing you to remove the fabric and see what is within, or keep it obscured. The desk which features work surfaces that pull out from each side, will be fitted with a new sheepskin leather top upon arrival. Note the continuity of the ormolu mounts making this set a truly collectible, yet surprisingly functional suite that will serve you and your family for generations, and perhaps even impress a client or two!
