We also feature a growing selction of high-end contemporary & early American furniture. FREE PICK-UP IN THE CHICAGOLAND AREA. Up for your consideration is a beautiful French Empire lap desk from the reign of Napoleon III, c. The desk is of the finest quality possible, adorned with extensive inlaid brass boullework and a rosewood interior. I doubt that a piece so spectacular could be made today. The piece retains its original leather surface, which has been decorated with real gold embossed trim. The box measures 13.75″ wide, 11″ deep, and 7.5 high. It is in excellent condition with a few concerns: There are two small pieces of missing rosewood (see last two photos), and a single and minor strand of boulle that has come loose (see last photo). Otherwise, there are no major concerns, with the only otherer notable issue is some minor sun fading to one side of the top of the box. Overall, this is about as nice as you are likely to see from this era. This quote is for the Continental U. THEREFORE, I WILL NEED YOUR HOME ADDRESS, NOT A P.
