Exceptional Boulle Secretary
This unusual piece has a lovely mahogany stain with gold transfer
work from the top to the bottom on the front of this piece. I also
have photos to show extra layering of wood that is found on the
top and at the base of this desk. There is one drawer on top and
then the drop front is a large piece of wood which one pulls down
to enter the interior . As we peer inside one immediately sees the
great border and mirror inside. Since the mirror is recessed, some
decorative pieces could fit inside. Below is another highly
decorative drawer. The original paper is aqua and it covers the
sides inside and on the writing part of the desk. Below this area
are three more large drawers.
This piece of furniture is one of the higher quality pieces made
with Boulle decoration.
