Exceptional French Ormolu-Mounted Mahogany Marquetry Secretaire a Abattant Desk. A very fine and exceptional quality French ormolu/bronze mounted lacquered, mahogany and marquetry Secretaire a Abattant. In the manner of Martin Carlin. The marble top above a frieze mounted with bronze mounts. The fall front (door) with two glazed panels painted with maidens holding baskets of flowers on gold ground. The reverse of the fall front (door), with red velvet writing surface, with four drawers. Beautiful marquetry sides with two marble shelves, the base with painted frieze, revealing a secret drawer, raised on four fluted legs, joined by a marble shelf stretcher. The ormolu mounts on this Secretaire are of the highest quality and most probably done by a famous maker in the 19th century.
