In the heart of Lisbon, in Largo Barão Quintela, no. 3, where the Montebelo Vista Alegre Lisboa Chiado Hotel now stands, there used to be the headquarters of the Vista Alegre Porcelain Factory. Among the company's various pieces of furniture, there was a desk that stood out for its beauty. 

Created in the 1940s, this desk is a masterpiece in walnut and walnut veneer, with delicate carvings and bronze fittings. It has seven drawers, three on each side, adorned with carved metal handles. With its cabriole-style legs, it has a timeless elegance. Finally, a glass top that preserves the wood and adds another refined touch. 

Marked with the Vista Alegre production number 71, this piece belonged to Augusto Ferreira Pinto Basto, managing director and production director of the factory. Today, this desk is a symbol of the legacy of Augusto Ferreira Pinto Basto and Vista Alegre. It preserves the elegance and sophistication of classic Portuguese design, reflecting an era when every detail was valued and every piece had a story to tell. 

The desk has the following measurements:

  • Height: 79 cm
  • Width: 141 cm
  • Depth: 76,5 cm

Investment: 2750,00
