Dating from the 1880s, this is a beautiful French writing desk with brass ormolu trim, brass molded edge, and a tag in French that says it’s from France. It’s has ormolu trim on the top part of the legs, and on the bottom. It has three dovetail drawers, comes with a key, although we never guarantee the locks to work, but it does have one. The finish of the wood is cherry color, and I’m not really sure what kind of wood it is, although it may be yew. It does have some wormholes in it, that show that it came from overseas during that period, and which add lots of charm and character. It has a green gold tooling embossed leather top, border edge in brass, brass ormolu trim on the legs, and brass inlaid on all the drawer fronts. The overall size is 46 inches wide, 25 inches deep, and 30 inches tall.
