Antique Miniature Davenport or Captain's Desk

Charming and rare, a miniature Davenport desk from a fine private doll collection. All hand carved, this piece may have been a furniture sample, an apprentice assignment. The only mark is a numeral 6 carved into the bottom right hand corner of the inside desk top. Condition is good. One of the knobs on the bottom drawer is broken. That drawer may have taken a tumble at some point in it's history, as there are a couple of nicks as well. The pieces separating the drawers are loose. A simple matter to re-glue; but one I will leave to the discretion of the collector. The tooled and gilt leather desk top is in very good condition and quite nicely done.

Dimensions: 12" tall, 19" tall with the desk top fully extended upwards. The width is 8" and the depth 9.5".
