Baroque Writing Table - constructed in the late 1800's.
This is a striking piece that can suit many different uses in the home. The table can be used as a desk, a card table, or a console table. Originally used as a writing desk, the soft leather table top is in mint condition. The leather has been retooled and lined with gold-leaf inlay. A detailed carving of a lion acts as the handle of a secret compartment with a dovetailed drawer. The lion carving is featured on both the front and the back of the table, making it suitable to be used in the round.
