A reproduction Louis XV fall front writing bureau. Made in France in the mid 1900’s. With locks and multiple drawers this useful piece of furniture has a marble top. The fall front desk surface is covered with gold tooled leather. Please note the solid brass ormolu decoration. We make no secret of our enthusiasm for these compact desks which have come back into favour in the age of the laptop computer. There are some small veneer losses which do not impede use and could be addressed in a number of ways.
76 cm wide x 38 cm high and 131 cm high.
An antique desk with a folding top in the Dutch style, Made in Northern Europe in the mid 1800’s, this useful piece of furniture is entirely practical in large or more modest accomodation, offering a large ready to use cleared desk with paperwork drawers in the upper compartment. Below three further huge drawers for your clothes, or whatever you wish. The covert surprise, the secret compartment hidden in the writing top. Please don’t tell any one!
So what’s the bad news? In 1870 someone left a wine glass brimming with burgundy on the top, and there is a ring mark from the foot. Remove it if you wish.

This one is “very antique”, should there be such a thing. Made in France in the early 1800’s this solid and substantial desk with fold down writing surface is a potential museum piece. from the particularly large writing area with it’s curved edge, to heavy locks and one off handles it is completely original. The secret compartment hidden in the table floor is an added extra. One shortcoming may be the lack of keys, however with the locks intact, they could be removed and new keys cut in the future
