Description
A fine Louis XV mid 18th Century French Kingwood writing desk stamped J Schmitz. Of serpentine form this wonderful ladies writing desk with inset leather top having a brass galleried back and kingwood crossbanding dates to circa 1770. The top sits over a serpentine structure with bombe sides having a bow shaped central drawer flanked by three graduated shaped oak lined drawers to either side with ormolu handles and escutcheons. The whole being beautifully decorated with interlocking flower heads boarded by a boxwood banding and kingwood crossband. This very attractive desk is also freestanding having mounts to the rear as well as being fully veneered in the same manner as the front. In wonderful condition retaining its original lock this lovely example of 18th Century French furniture has been made by the famous Master Cabinetmaker Joseph Schmitz (Paris Master June 18, 1762) who worked in Paris living in Rue de Charonne. His furniture was known for its quality and his stamp can be found on Louis XV decoratively veneered furniture with commodes and ladies desks being his specialty. A signed marble top commode recently fetched just under 20,000 euros at one of the top auction houses.
