England

circa 1795

The desk section with its pierced gilt brass gallery, wheeling handle and tethered writing slope rises to reveal internal drawers. The desk tip pivots 180° so that it can be used more comfortably with an overhang to accommodate the knees. The pen and ink compartment is concealed on one side with a smaller brass knob. Below are four mahogany lined drawers with brass knobs and a slide above on one side and matching dummy drawers on the other. The feet are almost bracket feet socketed into the original large brass castors.
