Look at what I found on the Online Galleries website!
Of very good proportions the rectangular top has a leather insert with kingwood crossband and brass moulded edge having ormolu mounts to each corner above three ormolu bound solid oak lined frieze drawers. The central drawer with an ornate ormolu cast female head surrounded by foliate scrollwork has two flanking drawers each having a secret sprung locking system. Raised on cabriole legs with mystical ormolu figures to the knee and brass sabots, the sides having an ormolu carving of Zeus the Greek God surround by banding.
This bureau plat is completely free standing as the back is mirrored to the front enabling the desk to stand freely within the room / study. In excellent condition having been finely restored using traditional methods this very imposing bureau plat will make a fine addition and talking piece to any home.
A very good quality a rare item of practical furniture that is earlier than most seen on offer.
