Attractive antique Victorian bonheur du jour.
A lovely antique Victorian bonheur du jour. We date this desk to the second half of the 19th century.
The desk comprises of a main writing surface with two main drawers over a base shelf and cupboard. There is a further small top cabinet flanked by two small shelves.
The table sits on four slender, downward tapered, square section cabriole legs.
The drawers are fitted with decorative brass swan neck handles mounted on shapely pierced backplates, the right hand drawer has internal partitions fitted. The drawers are fitted with locks (key supplied).
The lower section of the bonheur du jeur has a central shelf with a cupboard in the centre, this is fitted with a drop handle that turns to operate the catch. There is a small central shelf fitted.
The main surface of the desk has a fitted solid writing slope, above this sits an open shelf below the glazed top cupboard. The top cupboard has been lined with green velvet and is also fitted with a lock (key supplied).
The small shelves have pagoda style ends and are supported on four shapely columns to each side.
The desk has an overall height of 48.5" (123cm), a main table height of 29" (73cm), a width of 35.5" (90cm) and a depth of 20" (51cm).
This lovely antique bonheur du jour remains in a good solid condition with only minor surface marks commensurate with age and usage. There are a few minor indentations and light marks to the finish from past use. The very top surface would have had a small gallery at some point but this is not present. There would have originally been a fifth column to each side but these have been removed at some point in the past.
This remains a stylish and elegant antique desk. It will continue to provide good service for many years to come.
