A French Louis XIII style walnut desk from the late 19th century, with leather top, barley twist base and carved finial. Born in France during the last quarter of the 19th century, this French walnut desk features the stylistic characteristics of the Louis XIII era. A rectangular top, fitted with black leather, sits above a molded apron concealing a single dovetailed drawer opening thanks to a brass pull. The desk is raised on four exquisite barley twist legs, connected to one another through an H-form cross stretcher accented with a carved finial. With its elegant early Baroque style lines and lovely walnut patina, this French desk circa 1880 will bring a refined touch to any home.
