We are pleased to offer for your consideration a beautiful and very rare antique Viennese Bronze and Grisaille Decorated Enamel Desk with working drawer. This antique desk features a working drawer and the most beautiful deep cranberry background decorated in a style of painting called grisaille. Grisaille painting is a painting style executed entirely in shadesof grey or of another neutral grayish color screen.  This beautifully hand painted desk was most likely made in Vienna Austria in the early 1900's or late 1800's.  Unfortunately the enamel top of the desk has a little area of stress cracking visible in the background off to the very left side (see photo #3).  While the crazing is visible it does not come through to the surface.  The upright leg on the right side has been glued near the very top (see photo #4 & 10) however it is attached to the desk and it does sit well on the floor.  The desk measures 2 1/4" tall and 2 1/2" in width and on the 1:12 scale that would be two feet three inches in height and two feet six inches width.  The ornate bronze metal frames and legs have a soft even aged patina.  The hand painted panel features a classic courting scene featuring a man and a woman on a bench painted in grisaille with tiny gilt highlights.  This is a very rare example of this special color combination of a fine Viennese miniature bronze and grisaille enamel porcelain desk.  Even with the unfortunate damage, this desk will make an impressive addition to any well-appointed dollhouse.  PLEASE REVIEW ALL PHOTOS AND USE THE ENLARGE AND ZOOM FEATURES FOR THE BEST DESCRIPTION OF THIS RARE ANTIQUE VIENNESE BRONZE AND ENAMEL DOLLHOUSE MINIATURE DESK.
