CONTINENTAL CHINOISERIE DESK-ON-STAND Possibly Italian, Late 19th/Early 20th Century
The rectangular mirrored case reverse-painted with figures amid landscapes. The two doors enclosing a single interior shelf. Above a polychrome-painted base with brush slide with a tooled leather-inset writing surface and long drawer. On cabriole legs ending in paw feet. Height 52. Width 25.75". Depth 17.5"."


Some wear to the paint throughout the piece. The paint looks to be original to the piece, and it looks not to be a marriage. Structurally sound with some minor wear to the moldings, and the interior shelf currently out of position.
