A Louis XV Style Walnut Writing Desk c1950 Oak Secondary French Country Designer

sold out

A fine quality vintage French writing desk coming directly from a wealthy Short Hills, NJ estate that was professionally decorated in the 1950s.  I assume this desk dates to around that time.  Made from all solid wood, the lower portion with carved details and painted surface.  Two Drawers with brass pulls, oak secondary.  Unmarked, but surely by a high end maker, possibly Baker. Top surface is parquetry inlaid Walnut.

Condition:  General wear from use. Top surface has some losses to the finish from sun-fading, nothing major though.  Could be refinished or used “as is.”  Lower portion is in good shape with the old decorator’s painted surface.

Measurements: 29 1/2″ H x 49 1/2″ L x 20 1/2″ D
