Details: Antique French Louis XV ladies writing desk featuring a hand painted marquetry style motif of flowers, bows and musical instruments on the 8.5" deep scalloped writing surface and the back panel that surmounts a 7.25"deep shelf and six small drawers. The interior and the exterior sides have antique rouge marble insets trimmed with ormolu and a 2.5" deep shelf at the top. The curved veneered drawer with brass handles and cabriole legs adorned with ormolu give this piece a wonderful, feminine feel - as does the oval brass cameo of Diana The Huntress on the crest.
