Early 20thC French Ladies Writing Desk

Early 20thC French Ladies Writing Desk

This is a gorgeous early 20th Century french ladies writing desk, or dresser. The top of the desk features two sets of two small drawers with a mirror and a beautifully aged black leather. Below the serpentine top are another 3 drawers, with the whole desk being lifted on four elegant cabriole legs with a leaf molding at the top of each. 

Overall, the writing desk is in very good condition considering its age. The finish has had a sympathetic rejuvenation that preserves signs of the life it has had. A small section of the leather is missing in the bottom right corner - see photos. But this all adds to the charm and character of the piece. The original finish has some light scratches and a couple of small splits to the veneer, but none of these stand out, and are all in keeping with the age of the piece.  The mirror is in excellent condition with characteristic foxing, typical of old mirrors, and still fully functional.
