This very attractive early nineteenth century inlaid rosewood veneer desk set stands 72mm high, is 240mm long and 140mm wide. The base for the veneer appears to be mahogany. Internally there is a central lidded cavity with an ivory knob, flanked by two glass inkwells and in front of the inkwells are two spaces, one lidded, for pens. The two internal lids appear to be replacements. The top folding lid has warped slightly. The brass lids of the inkwells show faint traces of the original silver plating, and the collars that once held them to the glass are now gone.
