Fine French Antique Leather Writing Desk – Repair

This beautiful french writing desk has a number of necessary repairs, the fine marquetry is being repaired in this (upside down) pic.IMG_0260
The fine leather top (skiver) has many deep burn marks, many down to the wood base, in an antique of this quality, the leather is better repaired than replaced as the value and authenticity will suffer.

The gilded mouldings  are quite worn and require 23.5 carat gold leaf to restore to pristine conditionIMG_0259

You can see the burnt leather skiver – possibly – probably cigar or cigarette damage.IMG_0257

 

The antique leather top writing desk now filled and repaired.
