French Louis XV Style Desk / Bureau Plat With Dore Bronze Mounts, Circa 1950
French handmade “bureau plat” / desk is in excellent original condition. Gilded bronze handles and details on the upper sides and foot.
This beautiful desk, beautifully finished in kingwood, leather, gilt bronze, and fine marquetry in geometric forms is a fantastic piece of 19th Century French design in the Louis XV style. Elegant, beautifully crafted, and yet with a cool simplicity, this will make an excellent piece for an antique-inspired study or drawing-room.
The ‘bureau plat’ is set on four cabriole legs, each mounted with gilt bronze ornamentation showing hoof feet at the bottom, and classical style masks at the top.
The table is topped with rich leather and mounted around its rim with a chic plain gilt bronze frame.
There are further gilt bronze mounts around the desk’s skirting, including grotesque masks at either side as well as shells and acanthus leaf motifs.
On the front side, there are three functioning drawers, each of which is separately lockable.
