Antique French Painted Writing Table circa 1900

An antique French painted writing table circa 1900 with two drawers standing on turned legs. This handsome writing table has a graphic painted finish chosen to enhance the geometric quality of the table. The jet black painted top extends slightly wider and deeper than the base and has a slight slope to the entire perimetre. The undercarriage of the table has a deep charcoal colour paint with a slight sheen to the finish. All four of the legs have been constructed from a solid piece of timber that was turned on a lathe and shaped with a chisel to create the distinctive pattern seen here. The uppermost block of each leg provides the structural support for the pair of drawers set side by side in the front as well as the apron that is visible from all four sides. In contrast to the turned legs each upper flat section of the leg is embellished with a rectangular raised lozenge in the shape of a raised diamond and these appear on all four sides of the writing table enabling it to be seen from any direction. Each drawer retains its original drop brass pull with an elaborate open design that contrasts nicely with the painted finish. Both drawers open fully and extend to the depth of the table offering a great deal of usable storage space. Whether used with other painted furniture or on its own to add a counterpoint in the room this writing table is not only visually appealing it is fully functional as well.
