Secretary Period Transition Louis XV, Louis XVI - Rosewood & Rosewood - 18th

Sloping desk / sloping secretary / back donkey secretary from the Louis XV, Louis XVI transition period. Very high quality 18th century work. The subtly arched feet typical of the Louis XV style support a straighter body dressed in Greek specific to the Louis XVI style. Likewise, the flap is designed with beautiful curves associated with the Louis XV style. Double-sided, this secretary has 5 exterior drawers, 4 interior drawers and 1 secret compartment inside. The tablet is adorned with its original tawny leather decorated with gold patterns. Tablet height: 69 cm. Dimensions of the tablet: 77 cm x 32 cm. The rosewood is worked in symmetrical crimping and is highlighted by the darker color of the rosewood. In addition, sycamore fillets, forming the Greek Louis XVI, create a subtle and elegant border. Finally, subtle chiseled and gilded bronzes, keyhole entries, uprights and clogs, dress this secretary. Note a restoration of one of the legs (visible in the photo) and the wood on the back to be worked on (visible in the photo). There is a decorative key for the cover, and a functional key for the drawers. A lock is missing and another has been changed recently.
