Prince de Condé's Desk

Desk by André-Charles Boulle who was commissioned by the Prince de Condé to whom it was delivered in 1715. The Prince had the desk sent to the Château de Chantilly where it took a prominent place in the Corner Cabinet. The desk is made of ebony with golden carvings; each table leg is crowned by a woman emerging and at the centre drawer a lion's head dominates.
