A very nice American inlaid birds eye maple lap desk, circa 1870. The top is inlaid with bone, brass and ebony or "ebonzied" wood. The interior is a little rough and the lock is stuck in the open position making it so the box does not close completely. The exterior has some minor restoration and looks really good. Use as storage for you remotes! It is 11" wide by 7 1/2" deep by 4 1/2" high. Guaranteed to be as described.
