19th Century French Napoleon III Marquetry Rosewood Dropleaf Writing Table represents the combination of form, function, and superlative artisanry, all executed in the finest furniture woods ever used in the history of the industry!  Exotic imported rosewood, with its naturally dark appearance, contrasts nicely with the other lighter species of woods artfully inlaid into the surface to produce amazingly lifelike floral and foliate bouquets on the top and on each leaf.  Leaves drop down or lock into place independently, adding to its user-friendly design, while the full-width drawer provides surprising storage.  Elegantly tapered and fluted legs with bowed stretchers complete the design.
Circa 1860
Measures 29H x 27.5W x 21.5D; opens to 44" with both leaves!
