"Bureau Mazarin 18th Century"Superb Mazarin desk all sides, early 18th century, in walnut and stained walnut marquetry, as well as olive marquetry. It opens on the front with six lateral drawers and in the center a drawer surmounting a tabernacle. All of the drawers are inlaid with arabesques and floral patterns. The inlaid uprights of olive trees rest on eight turned feet and octagonal sheaths, connected by inlaid X-shaped spacers. The sides are straight with geometric patterns. The rear uses the same patterns in two cartridges as the front. The olive tree top is decorated with a central motif and six spandrels garnished with arabesques. The semi-wooden T-shaped assembly with shims, as well as the choice of indigenous woods for this piece of furniture and the two-tone chromatic effect, is reminiscent of the famous origin of HACHE's workshops. Assigned to Thomas HACHE.
