An Outstanding Boulle Secretary
This incredible desk has beautiful carved wooden columns on the front corners. Elegant gold transfer work designs are found on the drawers and drop front makes quite a statement in a room setting. There is a long narrow drawer at the top, then the drop front and two large drawers below. The white banding between these drawers with the white side columns highlights the rest of the desk! The interior has cubby holes with the fine blue original papers. The three cut out decorations appearing at the top of the cubby holes makes a special interior. The writing surface has the same blue paper with a slight spot on the paper. The desk is supported by tiny square blocks of wood. A superb piece for that special room!
