Mechanical Desk By Giovanni Socci

From 1728 to 1878, the Socci family of Ponte a Ema, a small town south of Florence, Italy, produced the finest furniture in Europe. Their clients expected the best and got it, including this desk now owned by the Louvre in Paris. It's one of four known examples of this remarkable design. It was made for Elisa Napoléone Baciocchi, the daughter of Elisa Bonaparte, a sister to Napoleon I of France.
