Antique French Louis XVI Mahogany Console ~ Writing Table represents the combination of extraordinarily talented furniture craftsmanship with one of the finest wood types known in the furniture world.  Mahogany has been prized for centuries for its sheer natural beauty, its durability, and its resistance to aging that is truly remarkable.  Here the artisans created a very functional piece, with four tapered legs carved with ribbon and bell flowers appearing below rosettes on the corner blocks.  The same rosette motif appears three times on each drawer as well, separated by reeding and fluting for an impressive facade.  Even the edging of the top, with its gorgeous flame mahogany grain on top, features rosettes interspersed amongst the fluting for a regal touch!
Circa early 1900s
