A Fine Louis XVI Style Gilt-Bronze and Pietre Dure Mounted Ebonised Writing Table,
Retailed by Edwards & Roberts.
This fine ebonised writing table has a three-quarter galleried superstructure with cavetto moulding above three cupboards, each with a panel door inset with fine pietre dure panels of vases issuing flowers. The lower part of the table has a pull out writing slide with a dark blue leather writing surface, above a long drawer centred by a tablet mounted with a foliate pietre dure panel. The table is raised on tapering square section legs united by an ‘x’-frame stretcher centred by a gilt-bronze vase. The beautiful Florentine pietre dure panels are inlaid in high relief with shaded agates marble, and semi-precious stones.
The combination of fine gilt-bronze mounts on an ebonised ground enriched with fine pietre dure inlay indicates the work of one of the best Parisian ébénistes of the period.
Alrededor de 1870
