France (Paris), attributable to the cabinetmaker's workshop Pierre II Migeon (Paris, 1696-1758)
Louis XV, mid 18th century

(cm): 96 x 46 x h. 89
The splendid Louis XV slope desk in question is a model of French, Parisian cabinetmaking from the mid-18th century, with a desk hidden in six small houses, open vanets and a secret compartment. The surface, masterfully plated and threaded in rosewood (violet wood and rosewood), plays on the arrangement of the veins with a particular rhomboid pattern. It is undoubtedly a piece of furniture that expresses the mastery of cabinetmakers active in Paris in the 18th century: among them stands out the name of the famous Pierre II Migeon (Paris, 1696-1758), who created a desk model similar slope to that proposed, both for the structure and for the rhomboid inlay.
