Lovely so-called bonheur du jour writing desk ; lemon tree, amaranth and brass veneer.

This is a late 18th century Parisian or Bordelese work (Louis XVI period or Directoire).

Most precious piece designed for a multi-purpose use : small cupboard in the center of the top part, galleries combined with mirrors to store and display valuable items, drawers for jewelry including one with a safe box, leather-trimmed tray to write with a drawer for the inkwell.

This elegant piece of furniture shows a high level craftsmanship with much refined wood veneers (lemon and amaranth, including on the back), brass inlays.

Every part is original : marble, bronzes, mercury mirrors, only one lock was replaced with its key. Our piece is in outstanding condition. It comes straight from our restorer who made the varnish in a traditional way.
Collector's item, rare item to find.
