Chinoiserie (pronounced shin-WAH-sur-ee) is a French word meaning “in the Chinese style” that dates from the middle of the 1700s when global exploration and expansion brought new ideas and decorative wares from exotic lands in the Far East.

As Europeans adopted and adapted the new designs, they applied them to decorate familiar forms. This meld of cultures was the beginning of Chinoiserie, which has become a classic design theme that has never completely gone out of fashion.

Even without its delicate hand painting, this is a beautifully made table-form desk, featuring a shaped top, serpentine aprons and slender cabriole legs. The satiny black finish provides the classic background for scenes of mountains, islands, trees, birds and lovers from Chinese literature. Brass knobs identify the single working drawer which is cleverly designed to look like three. Gilt outlines highlight the carvings as well as the pictorial panels that decorate all four sides, making it suitable to be placed in the center of a room – as the focal point it is certain to be.

From JBM, a well-known manufacturer of fine quality dollhouse miniatures.
