Beautiful inlaid mahogany side by side desk curio from circa 1915. This piece demonstrates a high level of craftsmanship and design and is historically situated between the end of the Victorian period and the beginning of Art Deco design. The side-by-side is a late 19th Century Victorian invention that combines a bookcase or curio with a writing desk and drawers. Often seen in oak, this model is elevated with solid mahogany, a prime and rare wood valued for its strength and beauty. This piece is rare too, for its intricate inlay work of satinwood, rosewood and mother of pearl within the desk surface. Feathered glass on the cabinet door, fitted with a fine mahogany overlay, also adds drama and interest to the piece. Victorian detailed woodwork abounds on the top of this piece, with fine carvings and attenuated columns throughout. A beveled looking glass (original glass to the piece) finishes the piece in late Victorian flare. A truly feminine statement piece for any home.

Dimensions: 43″ wide x 15″ deep x 77″ tall
