Spanish Writing Table with Drawers

Spain
17th Century

Walnut
Cm 81 high  x  123 wide x  64 deep

A beautiful Spanish writing table with mixtilineal “pata de lira” (lyre-shaped legs) containing both curves and straight lines, in keeping with the Baroque style popular during the reign of Charles II in the second half of the seventeenth century. The tabletop is one single wide board, and the legs are attached with mortise and tenon joints. The leg sections themselves are assembled with an “atarugado” technique using only wooden dowels, with no metal screws or nails. The table has three useable drawers, with the center one being uniquely narrow and having a wrought iron pull.
