Regency-Style Parcel-Gilt and Brass-Inlaid Mahogany Desk

late 19th century, the tooled leather top in a brass inlaid frame, over a frieze fitted with three drawers, raised on a lyre-form base on saber legs with ornate brass cup casters.
h. 30-1/4", w. 58", d. 34"


In very good polished and restored condition. The piece exhibits normal shrinkage, minor past repairs, blemishes and indications of age and use. The tooled leather top is worn but functional, with scrubs, blemishes, areas of inpainting and heavy wear to the gilt tooling. The drawers retain their locks. There is no key. Two of the drawers are missing their inset brass keyhole escutcheons. The reverse side has panels corresponding to the drawers. One small drawer is missing its stop. The center panel is inset deeply, leaving some visible raw wood at its bottom edge, with some areas of stain (inset about 1/4"). No missing brass stringing observed.
