Look at what I found on the Online Galleries website!
The cupboards to the top section conceal satinwood drawers with the original gilt brass 'axe head' handles. The door fronts are stunning with 'cartouche' satinwood panels framed and cross banded with tulipwood, ebony and boxwood stringing with well figured oversized kingwood banding and then framed with a bold boxwood line. The solid ebony moulding makes a defining feature between top and bottom between the superstructure and writing table.
The door design is mirrored to the top surface of the Bonheur Du Jour and is repeated once more to the drawer front that is flanked by boxwood and ebony inset padouk panels. These panels conceal lopers that pull out to support the writing surface. The hinged writing surface is concealed and opens out revealing a recently re-covered maroon baized top. The full length cedar lined drawer has its original gilt brass ring pulled handles and cast back-plates. The drawer with a concealed metamorphic ink and pen well and a drawer divider are in full working order.
The inset padouk panels are repeated to the side and sit above a bold boxwood and ebony stringing. The bonheur du jour stands on solid shaped satinwood legs with ebonised ring turnings which terminate on the original gilt brass castors.
