You are viewing a wonderful, sumptuos Boulle style partners desk. The piece is very distinctive and the amount of craftmanship that has gone into making this piece is astounding. The main wood to the piece is black over which there is some very intricate gold coloured plate work cut into various designs and embedded into the main structure of the desk. At various points the gold plate has been laid over a red faux tortoiseshell lacquer. The affect is startling and this desk is offered in perfect condition ready for home use right away.

The desk has a red leather top to the main writing surface. Some of the ormolu work is also worthy of extra attention here, especially the female figures on each of the legs, perhaps best illustrated by the close up photographs. It’s astounding the amount of work that has gone into this and it would suit various interior schemes. The piece comes with three working drawers to one side so there is ample storage space and this would also be perfect for an office.

Boulle, André Charles (1642-1732), French furniture designer, who developed a style of furniture inlay that came to be known as Boulle or Buhl. As cabinetmaker to Louis XIV, he produced desks, cabinets, clocks, chests, and even parquet floors, working in an ornate Baroque style. He is especially noted for highly coloured inlays of exotic woods cut to shapes that form arabesques, landscapes, or flowing draperies. The distinctive type of inlay that he developed and that bears his name consists of tortoiseshell with inlay in brass, pewter, or copper. His influence continued into the 19th century.

You are viewing a fantstic Boulle style writing desk with red leather top. The piece is the height of style, elegance and workmanship and is offered in perfect condition, ready for home use right away. As illustrated here, the Boulle style is best known for the type of inlay, consisting of a veneer of red and black faux tortoiseshell inlaid with brass or other attractive metals. The amount of time and levels of craftsmanship that goes into something like this is breathtaking, especially when you imagine how each individual shape to the brass has to be cut out and then embedded into the main structure of the desk.

The desk has three drawers to one side so would be perfect for your home or small office. The piece is so elegant it can also work on its own as more of a decorative piece too. We bought this at an auction house in near Versaille, whilst on a buying trip in France. Pieces of this quality are rare so we are expecting a lot of interest on eBay.
