An Exceptional Boulle Piece of Furniture
This piece of furniture is a remarkable piece and could really be used as just a decorative piece of furniture to enhance a hall or parlor. Some may use it as a desk, others may see it as a small sideboard. The form is so incredible....curved cabriole legs, a flat table top with scalloped sides, a long drawer above and a gallery on top, creating two shelves, attached by a curved support. The gold transfer work is a combination of scrolls on the apron below the table surface, but on top you see the reversal with gold background and rosewood designs. I think this technique of using the opposite transfer work, changing the backgrounds is so effective. Excellent condition.
Measurements: 5-1/4" h. x 4-1/8" w.
