This is an extremely rare antique French desk, but not for the Louis XV Classic style, but rather the condition. Somehow it has remained completely unrestored for the last one hundred plus years and still in its original rich ebonized finish. Look carefully and you can see the warm brown tones of the rich mahogany showing through the old layers of black stain. Drawers function properly and we have gone through the all connections, or joints to make sure everything is tight. We also have the matching chair in similar condition available.
