This vintage late 19th century Victorian travel size lap desk is designed in a dark veneer wood inlaid with abalone shell & mother of pearl. A hand worked intricate pattern of shell & brass wire dominate the lid cover. Opening the desk reveals a rich dark blue velvet interior with ribbon pulls, which, when pulled, reveal storage compartments for letters & stationery. One compartment is missing some veneer, very minor. The exterior lock escutcheon is missing.
