This striking ebonised and gilt-bronze mounted bureau plat is of exceptional quality with graceful proportions and fine gilt-bronze mounts.

The design is inspired by 18th century examples by the master ébéniste Andre Charles Boulle, such as the Bureau du président de Machault, and the Bureau des princes de Condé at Versailles.

The bureau is inlaid with brass arabesque and has finely modeled gilt-bronze masks depicting Poseidon to the sides and exceptional female masks heading the legs. The top has a tooled leather writing surface.
