French 19th Century Mahogany Veneer and Brass inlaid "Bureau a Cylindre"


1 In stock



France Ca 1880

Interesting Louis XVI style mahogany cylinder desk with a white marble top having a brass gallery rail and under which a cabinet with two mirrored glass doors, four quarter round mirrored shelves and two short drawers. All glasses are beveled. This roll top has a beautiful brass marquetry featuring diamond shapes containing sort of stars. When raised, the cylinder front reveals a storage space with five drawers, open space and a black leather covered writing surface that has to be pulled forward to accommodate a chair. All carvings are filled with brass and all the drawers front are trimmed in brass too. The desk stands on four straight tapered and fluted legs ending each with a sabot. The neoclassical profile of this desk with its mirrors on top and its brass inlays center and bottom displays an elegance that would fit in many modern or classical interiors.

Good. There is one shelf with a little damage to veneer as seen in photo. some of the brass is a little loose. Wear consistent with age and use. Minor losses.
