Louis Majorelle Art Nouveau Writing Desk with Rare Matching Chair

This piece is in it’s original finish and has its original matching chair. A French Art Nouveau desk in walnut, veneer wood fruit and bronze by Louis Majorelle. The three drawers of the desk are decorated in marquetry with flowers. The same pattern is repeated on the desk’s upright piece, which features letter holders on both sides. The pulls on the two upper drawers are in the shape of flowers. The desk’s legs are deeply carved and sinuous, circa 1900. A similar desk is pictured in Alastair Duncan, “The Paris Salons Volume III, Furniture”, Antique Collectors’ Club, England, 1996 variant reproduced on page 403 and in Alastair Duncan, “Louis Majorelle”, Abrams, New York, 1991, page 99.
