Offering an antique, travel writing desk dating to the late 1800's.
This wood desk measures approximately: 22" in length, 12" in width and 10" in height (measurements taken when desk is closed).
This portable / campaign desk folds open to 32" long, and has eight inside compartments, two outside drawers, and four additional secret drawers hidden behind a wall on the inside.
The top has an un-monogrammed brass cartouche. There are brass accents and a lock mechanism, but no key. The sloped writing desk still contains the original wood pen holder (7 1/2" long, 2" wide and 3/4" tall) and the glass powder jar with cover (1" tall and 1 1/2" wide).
There are bits of wood veneer missing on the top and corners. There is some staining, and a few minor rips to the black and blue velvet on the inside.
An amazing, substantial piece weighing twenty-eight pounds. This has never been restored or refinished in any way. It is original to its era.
