18th-19th Century Chinese Export Chinoiserie Lacquer Decorated Knee Hole Desk

About

A wonderfully all over decorated Chinoiserie decorated knee hole desk. Decorated bracket Feet support the three central drawers flanked by a set of three matching drawers under a large upper drawer. The top and sides all over decorated in the 18th century style. Chinoiserie is decorative work influenced by Chinese art. It reflects an 18th century romanticism and re-interpretation of Chinese visual images idealized for European taste. Featuring a molded shaped top with a long drawer center and three by three lower drawers. Decorated throughout in gilt chinoiserie decoration on a black lacquered ground. Acquired from a Greenwich, Ct. mansion. The chinoiserie style was first transcribed onto Dutch porcelain. Prototype motifs of pagodas, figures and landscapes were subsequently adopted for architecture, textiles, furniture, interior decoration and the arts.
