It's hard not to be drawn in by this Flemish escritoire, which has been finished in tortoiseshell and ivory. Made in the mid 17th Century, this piece has some wonderful features, like the doors that swing open to reveal a miniature room of sorts, complete with a marble floor effect and two bust pillars. The starting bid for this piece is €4,000 but I wouldn't be surprised if something so eye-catching wouldn't go for a lot more than that still.
