Direct from France, an elegant, and petite, antique French carved library table or "bureau plat" desk. A very petite size for this style, making it extremely versatile for use in today's home!!
Incredible detailed carving, captivating features that include ornate, relief carved lion masks on the canted corners and large carved foliate scrolls across the wide frieze. Quite unique feature here, two end drawers, one on each side. Brass drawer pulls on each drawer and brass ring accents in all four lion mouths.
Dual legs on each side, with hand carved acanthus bulbous shape to the legs. Ornately carved scalloped feet with large carved stretcher for stability and support. Carved on all sides, perfect for placement anywhere in a room because there's not a "back side". Solid oak with a rich finish, well built by craftsmen of the period, c1880.
