Catalogue Note

This lot and the following have been examined by the Parisi archives.  Sotheby's would like to thank the Parisi archives for their assistance in cataloguing this lot.

Please note, in the printed catalogue and in the lead illustration here, the desk is depicted with two drawers facing inward, and in the second illustration online, it is shown with three drawers facing outward. While this model is meant to be a partner's desk, it makes more sense for the module of drawers to be reversed, so that the three drawers face inward, and the two drawers face outward. Also, the two slim drawers facing inward under the desk top are not readily visible in the illustration.
