Piece Description

You are viewing a fantastic French Empire secretaire in kingwood with intricate ormolu fittings. The piece is great as it combines the functions of two items in one. It's a space saving desk as well as a chest of drawers. The desk opens out by the pull down writing surface to reveal a writing surface and cupboards and drawers. To the bottom there are three large drawers that open out smoothly. The ormolu fittings are also very intricate - on either side of the legs are the pharo heads with acanthus leaves, the lions paw feet and the intricate centre cartouche. I hope the photos (which are a bit dark) do this piece some justice, it is certainly more impressive in the flesh. The piece is offered in perfect condition ready for home use right away. We were lucky enough to buy this from a dealer in Les Halles, Paris, whilst on a recent French buying trip. Dimensions are in inches: Width: 29 Depth: 15 Height: 55
