This secretary –a writing desk with a lockable front panel –is decorated with 17th-century Japanese lacquerwork taken from old chests or cabinets. Parisian dealers in luxury goods, such as Dominique Daguerre, bought the costly lacquerwork and had new pieces of furniture made in which it was incorporated.
