French Louis XV Style 19th Century Burr Walnut and Leather Top Four-Drawer Desk

A Southern French Louis XV style 19th century burr walnut four-drawer desk from Avignon with leather top, foliage-carved décor and cabriole legs. Discover the grandeur and exquisite craftsmanship of this Southern French Louis XV style desk from the 19th century, originating from Avignon. This remarkable desk, crafted from burr walnut and featuring a rich burgundy leather top, is a testament to the elegance and sophistication of French design. The desk's surface boasts a beautifully aged patina on the leather, adding character and depth to the piece. The burr walnut panels, carefully selected for their striking patterns, wrap around the entire desk, showcasing the beauty of the wood. Despite its substantial size, the desk exudes a sense of elegance, thanks to the discreet yet intricate foliage-carved décor adorning the apron. While maintaining its originality, the desk has minor signs of old worm, all treated and no longer active, ensuring its durability and longevity. The apron features four drawers, with the right one divided into compartments. The right-hand drawer lock may not work, but this does not detract from the desk's overall functionality and aesthetic appeal. This desk, once a feature piece in an esteemed solicitor's office in Avignon, South of France, promises to be a spectacular focal point in any contemporary office or study. With a knee height of 23.75 inches, it combines practicality with unmatched beauty, making it not just a piece of furniture but a work of art that brings the charm and sophistication of 19th-century French design into your home.
