Antique Desk Set Elaborate Basse Taille Decoration
$245

Handsome antique Golden Bronze or Brass Desk Set. The desk accessories are not signed, although each piece has an engraved pattern number. The hand-engraved, brass set, in basse-taille, filled with black opaque enamel, consists of a large two-compartment letter box, pen tray, stamp box, rocker blotter, and pair of desk blotter side rails. Condition is very good, although one side rail has a shallow, repairable dent (pictured), and numerous areas of enamel loss throughout the set (correctible if desired); a few minor signs of oxidation -- slight inside letter box, backs of side rails and slight back of pen tray. We place age of the set at late 19th Century to early 20th. $50 US Shipping.
