19th Century French Louis Philippe Mahogany Drop Leaf Writing Table represents the combination of classic style and sublime functionality in one creation!  Utilizing exotic imported mahogany and hand-cast brass, the artisans shaped the legs structures in the form of a lyre, stylishly connected with a turned stretcher for added strength.  A pair of drawers are accessed with beautifully cast brass pulls.  The top is cleverly designed for the leaves to fold down when not needed to minimize the footprint on the room, but when opened provide a desktop surface over five feet in width!  Leaves are supported by concealed corbels that pivot out from the framework when needed.  Ingenious and attractive!
Circa 1860s
