Rare Biedermeier – Globe desk




Christian Eduard Franke Antiquitäten GmbH


Mainz, around 1830

Mahogany veneered with its original fittings. Globe desks mark a climax of the craftsmanship of ornamental carpenters: they are complicated to design and require a high level of experience and accuracy in processing the corpus and the costly veneers.

The faceted ball of this small desk appears very elegant on the columnar foot.

With many small, removable and partly hidden cases.

Three ogival-shaped niches with mirrored custom-made ornaments already anticipate the stylistic pluralism of the following decades.

Height 98 cm, diameter 42 cm.
