Rare and Detailed Art Deco Egyptian Revival Secretaire with Gilded Detailing

$39,975.00

A very rare and detailed Art Deco Egyptian Revival pyramid secretaire with 24-karat gold leaf detailing throughout. A trapezoidal central section features a hinged drop-down panel which depicts horse and chariot scenes with surrounding workers. Architectural elements of this piece lend to its Art Deco aesthetic, with extensive usage of symmetry and mirroring of panel detailing, plumes and Egyptian Gods and deities, the top section depicting, from left to right, gods Osiris, Hathor, Asar Hap, and Atum. The 1920’s brought along a lively fascination with ancient Egyptian mysticism and religion with developments in archeological findings, and this piece truly accents the time, with dramatic and theatrical representations of ancient Egyptian opulence by depiction of ornate detailing and rich, bold color palettes. A marble-based bronze God stands at the base of the piece, while a Sphinx-like form supporting an urn rests upon the top of the piece. A drop-down door reveals two shelves and a writing area. This piece is in excellent condition.
