Rare Early 19th Century Dutch Marquetry Inlaid Mahogany Escritoire

Netherlands
Circa 1800
The mahogany top sits above a single drawer that is highly decorated with an inlaid centre panel which is flanked by two cross-banded smaller panels with brass ringed handles. The escritoire's fall is cross-banded and inlaid with floral scrolls and chequered stringing with further cross-banded sections that frame carved polished stones depicting flowers, birds and fruit. The fine marquetry inlaid cross-banding is repeated below to the cupboard doors and details more polished stone flowers.

The canted brass-mounted corners with now faint marquetry inlays are again repeated to the sides of the escritoire. The fall opens to reveal a satinwood interior with a leather writing surface. This exquisite escritoire stands on its original tapered feet.
