Antique Writing Side Table Porcelain Plaques

This fine piece is an Antique French Writing Table or Side Table with Porcelain Plaques and which dates from around 1780.
This late 18th century antique French kingwood writing table (or side table) has been beautifully decorated with lovely ormolu mounts and also features a number of attractive Sevres style hand painted porcelain plaques as shown in the photographs we have provided.

The writing table top is rectangular and has been fashioned in kingwood. It is fitted with a very attractive three quarter brass gallery. Furthermore it has line inlay, rosewood crossbanding, and a delightful, centrally mounted porcelain plaque.

This French writing table has a frieze drawer fitted to one side but please note that it is finished all round, with all four sides being similarly decorated with the Sevres porcelain plaques which are set in attractive ormolu mounts.

The all-round finish means, of course, that this writing table does not need to be placed against a wall, instead it can be situated anywhere in a room and admired from any direction. A versatile, and very practical, item of furniture we are sure you will agree.

The writing table is mounted on elegant and very sturdy cabriole legs each of which having ormolu mounts situated on the knees and terminating in ormolu sabots.

This antique French writing table is in truly excellent condition as the photographs confirm. It is offered for sale at a very reasonable cost and is sure to attract attention wherever it is placed.

This antique French writing table is a compact and elegant item of antique furniture that does not take up too much space yet which provides a lovely space in which to work. The storage space is also very welcome, even on a fairly small piece such as this.
