19th Century Austrian Biedermeier Antique Writing Table Desk, circa 1825-1845

About

A fine austere writing table from the second quarter of the 19th century, likely Austrian or possibly German, the stand is distinctly Neoclassical with its twin columns and cupid’s bow footing. The veneer work is excellent with a spiral wrap of veneers around each column finished with a banded inlay around the top and bottom. One pair of columns is locked into the other with a turned walnut stretcher with a simple but effective spiral-ball turning at the centre flanked by groove turnings. The ovular top is simple with long pleasing lines in the grain of the wood; a single drawer slides easily in and out of the apron. Measurements: 31 5/8” H x 51 3/4” W x 30 3/4” D Condition report: Old refinish. Scuffs and scratches to the top, mostly on the side of the desk where it was actively used. Some crushing of the veneers in the corners of the drawer, likely from hitting against the arms of a chair over the years. Restorations including patching and areas of color matching; portions of the toes with inpainting and veneer restoration. Underside of the table shows a tidy construction with a pure structure.
