Chinese Qing Dynasty 19th Century Desk with Carved Frieze and Two Drawers
A Chinese Qing Dynasty period wooden desk from the 19th century with two carved drawers and fretwork motifs. Created in China during the Qing Dynasty in the 19th century, this exquisite wooden desk features a rectangular two-toned top with central board, overhanging two drawers carved with scrolls and traditional foliage patterns. They open thanks to a bail handle on a radiating brass plate. These drawers are flanked with delicate fretwork spandrels adorned with scrolling foliage echoed from the drawers.
The desk is raised on four straight, slightly splaying legs connected to the drawers thanks to additional fretwork completing the ensemble beautifully. The sides are strengthened with stretchers while the back is carved with faux drawers in a manner similar to the front. The desk will therefore be able to float in a room! With its elegant lines and skillfully carved décor, this Chinese Qing Dynasty desk from the 19th century will make for a great focal point in any home, particularly placed in a study or den!
