This walnut carved Neo-Renaissance style desk was made in Germany around 1880. It gets its shape and several decorative elements from Renaissance furniture. This piece of furniture is perfectly symmetrical and is very structured by its numerous drawers. The desk and its stool has very nicely carved baluster legs, and an X-brace structure. On both sides of the writing tablet, two dragons are carved in wood. On the central panels, low-relief faience plates by Carl Börner representing two women, signed “C. Börner.” They are dressed in Renaissance-style clothing and are symmetrical to each other. The desk is topped off by a meticulously carved balusters gallery.

The Neo-Renaissance style was a part of 19th-century “eclecticism” that wanted to mix various elements from past styles and also bring back these styles from past centuries. The historicist Neo-Renaissance style was first found in architecture, like for the Paris Hôtel de Ville (town hall), before being applied to furnishings and art objects.

Carl Börner was a German sculptor. He was born in Nieder Wiesa in 1828 and died in Hamburg in 1905.
