Dating from the last quarter of the 20th century, this is a fine example of an Empire style walnut rosewood writing table.

This walnut rosewood writing table features beautiful ormolu mounts and a tooled leather writing surface featuring a Grecian ‘key’ pattern. There are also large circular ormolu plaques around the rim which really typify the styling of the Empire period. There is a pull out writing surface adding additional writing space. The drawers are lockable and come with keys.

The overall styling of this walnut rosewood writing table is very formal with straight edges, abrupt corners and tapering legs braided with ormolu mounts, all very reminiscent of the Empire style.

The Empire style so typified by this wonderful walnut rosewood writing table, was developed during the reign of Napoleon between 1804 and 1815 and was highly influenced by Greco-Roman models and motifs. This was a time when styling was used as propaganda, and Napoleon rigidly controlled artistic production having it overseen from Paris. It was no accident that ancient Egyptian motifs were also used as these reflected Napoleon’s success in conquering Egypt. Ornamentation was marked by rigorous symmetry and usually featured figures and symbols of victory bearing palm branches, rose wreaths, swans, lions, flat acanthus leaves and climbing grape vines.
