Look at what I found on the Online Galleries website!
This desk was evidently created to showcase the extraordinary skills of the Japanese craftsmen to the European market. Unusually the parquetry also covers the reverse of the desk so it can be free standing. The detail and quality in th execution of the inlays is superb, especially the way the cabinet maker has even inlaid the knobs to correspond with the inlays I the main piece. Just amazing skill.
