Luxury Design, Past & Present
English small slant lid writing desk. Done in inlaid and painted satinwood, with a herringbone and banded rim, the lid is filled with a hand colored mezzotint, original to the piece, which depicts a mother and her daughter in classical dress. This was a typical theme in eglomise' looking glass panels in the period. This one is special in that the mother is pulling her daughter away from the distraction of a fortune teller. Unique and especially charming. The lid lifts to reveal a writing surface with compartments, all lined with faux marb papers. H. 33", w. 20", d. 15".
