Antique desk, marvel of engineering

I can't even imagine the time it took to design & build something like this. All done with no electricity, motors, or micros.

I think I saw this desk at the museum in Berlin last time I was there or at least one like it. Unfortunately it was a stationary exhibit.
Even putting mechanical engineering aside the detail in the wood and gilding was magnificent.
