Here we have a very fine example of an antique Louis Revival Marquetry Bonheur Du Jour which dates from around 1860 and which we are proud to offer for sale in truly excellent condition.

This Louis Revival French marquetry inlaid ormolu mounted Bonheur Du Jour, or Ladies writing desk, is a feast for the eyes with its abundance of beautiful marquetry decoration that is quite obviously the work of a master craftsman, or most likely several master craftsmen. The craft of marquetry is one which takes a long time to master and uses costly materials so it goes without saying that a piece of Louis Revival furniture like this would have taken quite some time to build.

As you can see from the photographs, this antique bonheur du jour features contrasting specimen wood marquetry which takes the form of scrolling frames adorned with bouquets of foliate and floral marquetry decoration.

This bonheur du jour offers much more than just good looks however, as can be seen from the photographs, it also offers much in the way of storage including a pair of serpentine cupboard doors which open to reveal a beautifully finished mahogany interior featuring a shelf with two short drawers below.

In addition to the useful drawers there is a useful writing slide which still has the original velvet inset writing surface mounted above a full width frieze drawer. Furniture lovers will also appreciate the gilded ormolu mounts which are featured on this lovely bonheur du jour.

For support, the bonheur du jour stands on slim, yet sturdy, cabriole legs and the item is supplied complete with working locks and the original keys.

Overall, this is a very special piece of furniture which is in superb condition and which is sure to be a talking point with your family and friends, wherever you choose to place it in your home or perhaps in a commercial setting such as a hotel. Please take a close look at the photographs to assure yourself as to the fine condition of this piece.
