The doors open to reveal a finished interior with shelf above two drawers. 

The desk has a full length frieze drawer below a slide with original velvet inset writing surface.

The desk graciously stands on arched cabriole legs, with heavy ormolu mounts to the knees and feet.

The desk is offered in very good original condition.
