Object description :

"Small Mahogany Cylinder Desk, Empire Period – Early 19th Century"
Mahogany furniture and burl mahogany veneer, in two elements. In the lower part we find two small drawers that pull out from below. In the center, a long drawer allowing you to operate the opening of the cylinder. The flap is lowered by brass hinges and rests on the drawer forming an inclined plane. This one is dark green cowhide leather with gold vignette and patterns on the corners. The interior of the cylinder is black lacquered and forms a half-round cavity to position writing accessories. The drawer has a net entry highlighting the passage of the original key activating the lock in working order. This set rests on the front by two turned legs with a collar in the lower part and a capital in the upper part. The rear feet are straight. A curved base with a half-rounded shape rests on “pancake” feet. The upper element of this piece of furniture consists of a door whose surround is mitered with a chamfered and square interior. Closing is done with an original key and lock. The door is darkened with an original mercury mirror. This opens by its attachment to a rotating column. The interior is equipped with three adjustable shelves on racks. These burr mahogany columns have a chiseled bronze capital in the upper part and a chiseled collar in the lower part. Below, we have a sliding shelf pulled by two bronze “lens” buttons. This allows you to place books or other items there. This small Empire period desk will delight you with its ideal dimensions, the beauty of its wood and its ingenuity. ******** Period: Early 19th century Perfect condition after restoration in our workshop.
