Magnificent Vintage Italian Roll-Top Desk w/Cherubs, Ormolu & ++
Italy 20th century Oooooo-weeeeee---FANCY! FANCY!! FANCY!!! This outrageous vintage Italian desk offers it ALL. An exquisite case of beauty, adorned with intricate marquetry, opulent cast ormolu decorations, all of this besides being purely functional, too. The cute cherubs sitting up top drinking and having a great time are actually candleholders for working late into the night. This fine roll top desk has all the bells and whistles, if it were outside, this extravagant desk would stop traffic with its unique appearance. Awesome for anyone that amasses clutter and might need to hide it quickly from those with prying eyes. Even if you aren’t in need of a roll top or a desk, this awe commanding work of art, would be outstanding storage with its abundance of drawers and cupboard space, or possibly an exciting dry bar utilized when entertaining. However you choose, I seriously doubt if you’ll ever see another like it.
