18th Century Mechanical Ladies Desk

The J. Paul Getty Museum has a new exhibition that is sure to leave you titillated!  Paris:  Life & Luxury in 18th Century France features everyday items from a long-ago era, like a mechanical table with secret compartments. 

If you click on the photo of the desk, it will open an informative and fascinating video about the desk and how it operated.

    THANK YOU for posting this! Otherwise, I would have never known about this exhibit. I just ordered the exhibit catalog. Have you ordered it yet?

  2. Bonjour Veronique! I am so glad to see you back on my pages. You are welcome for this post and YES, I ordered the catalog and received it in the mail TODAY! As soon as I catch up on some work, I will go read it. Can't wait!!
