Exceptional Mazarin Louis XIV office desk attributed to Thomas Hache, early 18th century period (around 1720-1730). Opening through a door and drawer in the centre and two rows of three slightly curved drawers in the front, forming two pedestals resting on eight legs in sheathing joined by X-shaped cross-bars. The legs composed below by pedestals and surmounted by polished bronze capitals and engraved with acanthus leaves in their corners testify to Thomas Hache's production. The top of this piece of furniture made up of an exceptional geometrical marquetry decoration in veneer of olive wood, walnut, boxwood and violet wood. Its fileterie in triple strand alternated with violet and boxwood is typical of Thomas Hache's production. The structure, composed of resinous wood for the frame and drawer fronts as well as walnut for the drawer pedestals, attests to a Grenoble production where Thomas Haches officially took over the workshop of his father-in-law, Place Claveyson, in 1720. This desk will be delivered with an invoice attributed to Thomas Hache.
