Charming French antique Directoire desk from the mid 19th century. This piece is from Lyon, France and is made of solid elm. The piece features an original black, patinated leather top with an embossed gilded frieze. The desk has authentic cast bronze hardware and two pull out leaves that also have leather surfaces. Each leaf adds 12.25” to the length. The middle drawer has an original key. We love the small size of this piece and the overall elegance of the finely tapered legs and beautiful wood grain.
