This large (18" x 9 3/8" x 6") box is a rich mahogany veneer. The top has a brass shield shaped inset with a small brass shield around the keyhole. The outside is a rich color with some wear from use. The bottom has a large crack. The top has a very tight crack. The stripping on one side edge bows a bit. The inside has the ink well holes, no ink bottles. The pencil tray is there. There is no lock or key. The writing surface is included. The velvet cloth is tattered. The device for holding the top panel in place is missing. If one wanted to restore it as a lap desk, it would take a bit of work. Else it makes a wonderful antique box. This one is priced at a bargain price.

The heat is on here in Texas. Today was "stifling". A good day to stay indoors and shop.
