From the late 1800s or early 1900s, I offer this wonderful and unique slant top lap writing desk made for a child and perfect for an antique doll display!!. It is about 9 1/2" long x 8 1/2" front to rear and 3 1/4" high. Made of wood, it has a dark stain and rich patina. The larger slant top opens towards you and the smaller upper piece opens away from you to reveal a compartment that looks like a drawer. This has a little handle but doesn't pull out. However, the child could keep items in this area as well as in the lower storage part. When closed, the surface could be used for writing or propping up a book to read. I have never seen another like this and think it would look great on display with other antique children items or school day memorabilia. It does have some issues that can be seen in photos...the top piece has been broken off along the front and also a piece in back where it is hinged. An old ruler has been added to the front to hide the gap. Just so adorable!!
