French Regence Period, Large and Rare Black-Lacquered Flat Desk with Gilt-Bronze Decoration


The Regence Period furniture is rare; the period is short and at the same time very rich in the desire to change Decorative Arts. Our Flat-Desk is early in the Regence Period, by its austere appearance inherited from the Louis XIV Period and it begins to be inscribed by its enlivened forms in a softening that announces the Louis XV Period.

A very large, rare, and decorative all sides, pearwood black-lacquered flat-desktop. On one side, it opens with three drawers, on the opposite side three false drawers. The entire façade embellished with gilt-bronze hardware.
Our Flat-Desk raised on elegant serpentine legs embellished with gilt-bronze hardware.
The top belted with a golden bronze mould and, gorgeous patinated leather with a beautiful golden decoration.


Gorgeous French Regence Period flat-desk, circa 1715-1723.
