Napoleon III secretary in blackened wood topped with white Carrara marble slightly veined with gray and surrounded by a chiseled bronze molding.
This unique piece of furniture opens with a drawer at the top, a flap and four drawers at the bottom. Each of the facades has a bronze rod applied in its periphery highlighting brass inlays. These are made up of refined floral nets and arabesques also present on the flap, benefiting from a large central decoration with motifs of bouquets, flowers and foliage.
At the corners of this flap, four bronze sculptures depicting stylized shells adorn the whole.
The opening reveals a tabernacle composed of a speckled maple in light wood framed in Rosewood, as well as a drawer, simulating two, with a front in Thuja burl.
On the perfectly balanced flap, a light fawn-colored leather with golden vignette is enriched with a harmonious central ornament.
This secretary benefits from numerous bronze fittings: finely carved high and low falls, original locks accompanied by their added key and chiseled moldings.
It rests on four "spinning top" feet fitted with their brass collar.
Graceful and elegant, this 19th century secretary will delight you with the finesse of its ornamentation.
