Louis XVI Style Bronze Mounted Parquetry Inlaid Kingwood Desk with Faux Malachite Top
This lovely and finely crafted desk in the Louis XVI style dates from the 20th century. It features a kidney-shaped top with faux malachite painted top and clear glass, kneehole drawers showing hand-cut dovetails, frieze and drawers with inlaid parquetry, reeded gilt bronze mounted tapered legs with reed bronze mounts. Measures: 31.5 x 43 x 21 in. Condition is good. There are some faux-malachite paint losses that may be restored, scratches throughout, small chips and nicks, and scratches. And, there are numerous and new, severe cracks to the glass, not shown in our images. The desk may be enjoyed without the glass top, or it may be replaced.
