Aren't desk interesting when they are opened and you can see inside of them. All the nooks and cranny's and maybe old ink splotches or a hidden key behind a drawer. This antique French desk is so charming and just the right size. Love the horn frames sitting on it, the European mounts, old mercury pieces, and silver jars. I recently purchased a few of the horn frames and put sepia toned photos in them and they turned out so pretty. We expect to get more in this Fall.
