medium

Patinated and polished bronze

creator

Lalanne, Claude

condition

Overall in very good condition. The bronze surfaces have been sensitively cleaned by a professional metalwork conservator. When viewed in person, the patinated bronze displays a rich gold surface and beautiful contrast between the polished top and richly textured crocodile skins. The bronze surfaces with a few minor surface scratches and minor remnants of oxidation to the recessed portions of the design, consistent with age and gentle use. This spectacular sculptural desk comes from the same collection as lots 52 and 53 and displays extraordinary detailing to the bronze cast crocodile skins. While identified by the artist as a "bureau" or desk, the scale also makes this form ideally suited for a console table.
