Antique Desk Set Elaborate Basse Taille Decoration

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.
