The design of our French Marquetry Slim Fit Top is developed from the marquetry arabesque patterns on a beautiful writing desk of around 1685, now in the Museum’s collection. One of the few surviving pieces commissioned for Louis XIV's personal use, it was one of a pair intended for the king's small private room in Versailles. Surrounding the king’s royal symbols on the top of the desk, the intricate marquetry pattern is crafted in tortoiseshell and brass.
