pen holder, drawer, and a small box which rests between the ink wells. The front of the box has been painted a taupe color with flowers including Lilly of the Valley. The letter set must have been a favorite piece which was used often. The gold pen work on the front and sides is worn on the edges. This could be touched up if preferred.
