Rare golden lacquer and brass Maison Jansen secretary cabinet 1970s

$ 25,000
  • Description
    An exciting example of French design firm Maison Jansen’s commissioned pieces. This secretary cabinet is made from solid mahogany, lacquered in a rich dark brown and bronze–golden finish. The resulting effect is a beautiful mottling of color around the entirety of the piece. Bright solid brass in the feet, accents, inside, and handles highlights the warmer, lighter colors of the wood. The stately proportions are impeccable. The care that went into the construction of every tiny detail of the secretaire is clear—as each piece was made on order only for clients who could afford the top tier of Maison Jansen design. The result of such careful attention and high-quality materials is this truly masterful piece. It’s quite rare, as the design was never mass-produced. Fully cleaned and restored, and in great vintage condition.
