Here we have, a nice, early lap desk. It has a black lacquer finish with painted on floral decoration, and mother of pearl inlay. The MOP inlay is in each corner of the top and also in the floral decorated center pattern. It opens up, and you have the felt pad on the inside, both on the lid, and on the base panel. There are two compartments in the bottom. One large one underneath the writing panel, and one under the pencil holder in front, and two small compartments, one on each side of the pencil holder. The lock needs to be put back on, but is there, but no key or cover for the key hole. It is in very good condition, but has a chip on the corner of the lid, which you don't see till it is opened. It measures 13" x 10" wide, and is 3 3/4" x 2 1/4" high front to back. Very nice old lap desk to add to a collection!!
