click to enlarge
This Italian writing desk circa 1880 is covered with incredible inlays of exotic woods, producing a wonderful presence. The 5 working drawers on the front of the desk are repeated in an outline of decorative inlays on the back of the desk. The top and sides are heavily inlaid with geometric and floral details extending down each of the cabriole legs. Against a wall this would also make a unique vanity.
