The top of the desk is inlaid with leather which has gold tooling although this is heavily worn now. This is a twin pedestal style desk and the top simply lifts away from the two pedestal bases to make transporting simple. The top section contains two short and one long central drawer and there are a further six drawers in banks in each pedestal. The drawers feature recessed brass drawer handles.
As can be seen in the pictures supplied the leather writing top is heavily worn and shows plenty of character. There are various marks and scratches as would be expected of an item of this age.One of the carrying handles is missing.
