"Secret Secretary At The Time, Louis XVI"
Secretary flap, said cabinet, veneer of rosewood and amaranth, gilded bronze, royal red marble top, Louis XVI period. (H x W x D): 143 x 96 x 40 cm. Elegant secretary of Louis XVI period with simple and measured charms. It has a veneer of rosewood wire and sausage forming butterfly wings on the lower leaves and the flap that surmounts it, as well as on the belt drawer and the sides. The compartments of rosewood are framed with contrasting amaranth contours and decorated with amaranth and boxwood filets. The cut edges of the secretary are adorned with triglyphs of gilded bronze in the upper part. The base with the geometrical cut, very neoclassical, is decorated with an antique lamp-head. The sobriety of the furniture has been respected since it has never been enriched with bronzes on its base, a practice that is too widespread and changes our perception of 18th century furniture. The furniture is topped with a thick red royal marble top in very good condition. Inside, behind the doors have been cleverly placed drawers, one of which reveals, by sliding the bottom of the box soon after removing it, a secret designed to accommodate papers and valuables. Very good condition, gilding wear.
