Circa 1870, exceptional quality carved oak Flemish freestanding writing table. The rectangular top with inset burgundy hide writing surface with gilt tooling and foliate carved foredges, the frieze with carved lion head flanked by drawers with further foliate and lion head carvings, with oak lined drawers, the sides and back of the frieze with matching carvings. Supported on pairs of barley twist supports at each end, interconnected by barley twist stretchers on a cabriole base with carved masks and scrolled toes. Wonderful lovely colour and patina.
