Walnut and burl veneer over wood with cypress inlays.
This elegant desk is embellished with refined inlays of garlands incorporating plant elements to which curious oriental-style profiles have been added. The piece has five small drawers above the writing surface and two larger drawers below. The truncated pyramidal legs are connected by mixtilinear crossmembers, and the feet are of a flattened onion ball style.
