This is an early Papier Mache Writing desk. It is black lacquer with gilding and MOP. The lid has a MOP bird and a dog. The outside of the box is lovely. The inside appears to have its original velvet writing surface. The ribbon hinge is a replacement. The inside has a pen tray and places for the ink bottles. There are pad feet. Two of the feet have chips on the edge. It appears it had tiny ball feet as well. Only one is remaining. In examining the hinge side, it appears the side has been replaced with a painted board. I did not not see this until I examined it closely. The lacquer surface is crazed. The lock is intact, but there is no key. Overall the desk is in wonderful condition. It measures 9" x 11" x 4" on the tall side.
