This elegant and unusual mahogany and kingwood pedestal is of of bombé shape with fine gilt-bronze foliate mounts. The pedestal has a shaped breche d'Alep marble top above a front fitted with a series of drawers, each finely inlaid with floral marquetry. The dummy front to the second drawer opening to reveal a leather writing surface and a fitted interior.
