A Monumental NeoClassical Black Lacquer Worktable


Scroll down for 4 more photos

This exuberant two-drawer worktable retains its original black lacquer surface with Chinese vista and painting not only on the two leaves but also on the side beneath, which is only seen when the leaf is raised. The upper case is supported by four fully carved cornucopias, a symbol of hospitality, all of which is supported by four paw feet with acanthus carving. This table is clearly one of the best extant and unquestionably, a masterpiece of the Empire worktable. The brasses are also large and robust.

Height: 33 1/4 in. Width (closed): 23 1/2 in. Width (open): 32 in. Depth: 17 1/4 in.
