French Louis XVI Secretaire in the Style of Riesener
Riesener Secretaire with Marble Top 17A65

A superbly crafted piece! Ebonized and French polished to a high luster, Museum quality finish. The piece is topped with a thick Carrara slab in great condition, and has gilt trims throughout. The fluting is lined with gilt brass. The secretaire has finely cast gilt bronze hardware. The interior is the best part, behind a drop front lined with gilt embossed leather and sustained with two decorative brackets, rests a full cabinet with dovetailed drawers, compartments and doors. We also loved the additional storage provided by the three large bottom drawers.
