Circa 1900, French neat sized walnut bureau plat. The top is quarter veneered and has a single string inlay, and further crossbanding which is segmented to follow the shape of the double serpentine top. Outside of this the whole top is mounted and encased in a brass bezel. Each corner has a wonderful cast brass mount in the form of flowers. Below the top is a drawer with cast brass Rococo handles. The bottom of the drawer is shaped and finishes like an apron. The gables are bow fronted with half matching veneers. There are carved capitols on the tops of the elegant legs, which have chamfered fronts and are crossbanded, sweeping down into cast brass sabots. Neat size, excellent colour.
