This is a simply stunning French antique bureau plat, or centre table, crafted from burr walnut and positively dripping with quite exquisite and intricate marquetry, dating from around 1850.

This truly astonishing antique bureau plat features beautiful marquetry decoration of kingwood, rosewood, tulipwood and purple heart with elegant ormolu borders. The central panel is beautifully inlaid with musical instruments on a flower-filled ebony ground. But beauty does not come at the expense of functionality; the table also has a useful and capacious frieze drawer which is fitted with the original working lock and key.

The table stands on turned and reeded legs joined by inlaid X-stretchers with a striking central ormolu mounted turned finial. Words really cannot do justice to the breathtaking beauty of this antique bureau plat. It will render your guests simply speechless!
