A fine Victorian kingwood and box wood strung mounted ladies writing table in the French taste, the central draw with an oval panel of semi precious stones and the superstructure with 5 draws. The whole raised upon cabriole legs.
It was very fashionable during the Victorian period to copy the French style And considered to be very hip. The quality of these English made pieces was usually very superior and it was considered that the timbers used in the carcass should be as good as the exterior. This is very evident in this lovely timeless piece.
