BOULLE MARQUETRY BLACK LACQUER DESK, H 33'', W 76'', D 40'' French style writing desk in Boulle Marquetry style. Black lacquer with gilt gold stenciling throughout. Three drawers on either side. Desk size: H 33'', W 76'', D 40''.


The glass that covers the top has many scratches. The metal trim at the front edge of the desktop is detached. The trim at the left side of the desk top is loose. At the drawers on the right side of the desk the top drawer has metal trim lifting in the lower left corner. At the drawers on the left side of the desk, a piece of the metal trim of the drawer surround has come off. We have the piece. The piece is approx 12" -14" in length. At the knee hole of the desk there is a cabinet. When the cabinet door is opened there are four spaces for the hinges, but only two hinges are attached. In the spaces of the missing hinges there are noticeable chips in the veneer. This can only be seen when the cabinet door is opened. The integrity of the door is not affected by the missing hinges. The two hinges,that are attached, work just fine. The drawers have machine dovetailing. The circa is mid to late 20th century. TW 12-12-18
